very confusing.

Don't get me wrong, I greatly dislike spam, but next thing you know it
will be against the law to send packets to someone you don't have
consent from...
or hand out pamphlets / talk to someone on the street you don't have
consent from...

I figure the solution here that fits with the best interests of the
people, or really with any internet problem,
is a defensive or cryptographic one; instead of an offensive or
law-based punitive solution.

e.g. Requiring proof-of-work headers for email that doesn't want a
speedy descent into /dev/null
