Spam foes band together
An organization due to launch Thursday will connect influential opponents of spam around the world in an effort to roust junk e-mailers from their international hideouts.
Anne Mitchell, president of the Institute for Spam and Internet Public Policy, will present the group -- the International Council on Internet Communications -- Thursday at ISIPP's International Spam Law and Policies conference in San Francisco.
Mitchell said that the private-sector organization will give highly placed spam fighters and strategists a direct line to their counterparts in other countries in order to disseminate information, coordinate tactics and make it more difficult for junk e-mailers to hide their operations.
