This article an author's thoughts on the spam problem which is the topic of two articles in the April 2004 issue of the Business Communications Review. Rebecca Wetzel's article relates her electronic mail exchange with the author which got caught up in a spam filter. The author agrees with Wetzel that the legislation is likely to be ineffectual in solving the spam problem. In Dick Kuehn's article, he points out that introducing a universally accepted charging mechanism will be complex, and mentions a faulty carrier billing system, that of handling larger numbers of spam messages. Kuehn also points out the relationship of spam with voice over Internet protocol.
