It great to see someone doing something other than holding a meeting or passing a law. There are laws on the books enough. I can only wonder why it took them so long, but go get'em!

My spam has dropped a lot in the past year. For some reason "Cialis" spam seems to make it through... I hope they get that one too.

I like the quote "Pfizer attorney Beth Levine said the fake Viagra advertised by the spammers doesn't work like the real thing and in some cases could be dangerous if taken."
Up to now it has been difficult for people to buy on the internet from someone they don't know, as the return per marketed person through offline marketing is alot greater than the return per marketed person through online marketing and now when this quote by the company lawyer/spokesperson gets mainstream media through TV and newspaper exposure it will be even harder to turn a sale online and very doubtful those that read this quote/story will purchase the product in question.
Thus this story has a good and bad side to it.
