    Actually the idea was to use a bit of computing time as the stamp, i.e. your computer spends ten seconds solving a math puzzle before it can send an email. It's designed not to inconvenience your average computer user, but cause huge problems for spammers.

    On the other hand, this'll never work: spammers are more clever than hackers when it comes to getting around blocks.

    Yeah I don't think this would work cause there will still be free email providers. That just sucks.
    Penny for your thoughts?

    you know what.... bill gates controls windows servers.... linux has always been free and always will be free..... with free mailservers.... bill gates can fret all he wants, but the fact of the matter is, his shit ain't gonna fly with those who are in the know. He's trying to get big corporations on his bandwagon, and I can personally say without a shadow of a doubt that it's not gonna happen.
