101 years in prison for SPAM SCAM!

Some U.S. technology laws seem to be nothing but a hodge podge of cryptic draconian code, seemingly written by technophobes and all too often, designed to favor Goliath over David. But every now and then they get the right person. Now if only I can convince those who send genuine, important financial and other time-critical email to fill in the From: address with a valid email address which is read by a real person (to catch vacation messages and filter bounces) and fill in the To: and CC: address with something other than "undisclosed recipients:," Even if you don't fall for SPAM, hyperactive SPAM filters can keep you from getting your genuine email. Missing an important email can be VERY costly! Ad-hoc SPAM filters will never work as well as true verifiable sender and target identities. And no, I'm not talking about some proprietary Microsoft identity scheme! I certainly hope this guilty California SPAMer doesn't have email access from prison.
