There is a substantiated rumor out there that our legislators have
considered a "per e-mail" charge, to support the Post Office (not the
place to put the money). Maybe ISP's could be allowed to charge for
excessive e-mail useage, and keep the profits . . . Like the
Republicrats say, let the market decide the price. Would spammers pay
30 or 50 cents per e-mail? Some would, some definitely wouldn't.
