spam

According to the AP, the FCC had announced as part of the CAN-SPAM Act they would be compiling a list of domains that send email to cellphone users.  Now the conclusion we initially drew from this was, "Sweet, a list of reported spammers so that the FCC might, you know, protect us from crap."  Turns out the FCC list is actually a compilation of cellphone-related domains that it is illegal for telemarketers to send email to (without permission, of course).  This is a 180 from earlier reports on the list, but also probably a lot more practical since spammers already know how to switch domains once one has been blacklisted.
