FTC hits a home run

Everyone knows that I think bureaucrats could use some productivity training. But damn, do I love it when they fine the crap out of someone for spamming and spyware (and even for giving away personal data). The FTC just dispensed their biggest fine yet under CAN-SPAM. The perp was Jumpstart Technologies, an internet marketer who deployed emails akin to those fake “handwritten letters” you get in the regular mail every now and then.

A thank you is in order. So everyone….Thank You FTC (but don’t rest on your laurels).
