to ban spam. Commercial e-mail in Austria
must go only
to people who have opted in. Violations are
to be punished with a large fine.
The new law presumably still needs to be approved
by the full house.

I suspect the only way we'll kill spam is if we start charging
a penny per email or something, but thats a bummer of a solution.
I'd settle for simply requiring unsolicited emails to say in the
subject that they were spam.
