Please, "age++", NOT "age--"... :-).

Although you are "speaking for just myself", that kind of reaction
falls back on everybody. It's understandable and more to it, but
nevertheless it only helps the Bad Guys - those with nice behavior
and in tie and suit that know how to do lobbying.

Why not find something common to most spam that can be made illegal.
My 0.01 ECU would be "fraud From", i.e. when a spammer sends out mail

    From xyz@localhost

which puts blame on as well as creates a technical burden (we
have had exactly that problem for quite some time -
is brought down at times by a large number of error bounces). It's
very common in spam and it's beyond my understanding why such behavior
should/could not be made illegal.
