Baked Virginia Spam

Virginia has passed legislation that makes fraudulent spammers criminally liable. The law was apparently inspired by an FTC report that 66 percent of spam contains a fraudulent claim. The report, which I can’t seem to find, analyzed 1,000 emails from FTC databases and government mail boxes. I wonder how long it took them to gather 1,000 emails.
According to this article, AOL, Yahoo, and MSN have agreed to pool their resources to fight spam. Spam annoys me as much as anyone else, but while it takes me one keystroke to delete a spam email, it takes me two clicks to get rid of a pop-under ad (one to maximize the ad window, another to close it). What are these companies doing about this problem? They’re selling it: AOL, Yahoo (check out the example ad), MSN.
