Fight Back Against Smutty Spam

Junk e- mail is bad enough. But smutty spam has the government taking six companies to court.

The companies are accused of sending pornographic junk e-mail without marking those messages with the words "sexually explicit."

Anti-spam regulations require those words to appear in the subject line so spam filters can catch them and parents can get to them before their children do.

The Federal Trade Commission says other companies may be violating the law, so if you get a pornographic spam message that's NOT labeled "sexually explicit," you're encoraged to forward it to *this* address:  spam@uce.gov .
