        I fail to understand how anyone with half a neuron, or even a
congresscritter, can think that spammers have rights that need to be
protected. They operate on the grace of a federally and privately funded
networks, and never pay the true cost of what spamming costs. It's also one
more clear point why lobby groups should be illegal.

        I can't even think of a good example to compare these spamming morons to.
Personally, I think CNN Headline News should run "Executions _at_ 8", where we
line up the spammers, walk down the line with a Colt .45, and put a round
through their face. And you get to enter a lottery for $2 if you want to be
the triggerman. If that doesn't slow them down, it's hard to imagine what
else will.

        There's just NO justification for their existence, past, present or future.
And only a crongresscritter could fail to understand that.
