CAN-SPAM Definition and musings

I never really knew exactly what the name of the law “CAN-SPAM” actually stood for. Thanks to Jon Galloway, I learned that the acronym stands for “Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing”

Oh, it has nothing to do with Canada!

But wouldn’t it have been better if they had worked it out to be “CAN’T SPAM”? Because that’s what the law (actually it’s an Act) is for – so that people can’t spam. Here are more details .

And if CAN-SPAM means the above, then does that mean “SPAM” refers to “Solicited Porn and Marketing?”

This is what happens when you try to think late on a Saturday night.
