I tend to agree. Spammers are unscrupulous and unethical. Although I dislike the idea of paying for email, I wonder if that is indeed the solution. According to article, even a nominal fee (1 penny for 4 emails) will seriously hinder the spammers’ economic model. That’s the most obvious cost model (per email) but I wonder if a different model might be better. Maybe one ISP fee gets you Internet access and, say, 25 emails per day. Fork over a little more and get 50 emails per day. Price it so that it still detsroys spammers motivation but allows the Average Joe to feel like he’s still getting free email.
