Yahoo and Unilateral Anti-Spam Technology?

drdale Re:All together now! (397 comments)

It is unlikely than anyone's behavior will change with an economic incentive, but only some kind of technological innovation will make it possible alter the economics of the situation. Of course, the problem would disappear tomorrow if everyone in the world simply resolved to stop buying products advertised via spam, but that isn't going to happen. (Maybe just as well: The problem of companies sending out spam for their competitors' products might be just as bad.)
