    Yes Ma'am

    Nothing important
    Just a big
    Pain in the a$$

    What would happen if Spammer have to pay YOU for every email they send?

    Email companies such as Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, etc can set up a pricing scheme.

    Unless person is in your close contact list the person who wants to email you would have to provide their credit card, PayPal, etc information.

    Or perhaps pay in Bitcoins.

    Both you and your email provider gets paid.

    Imagine that.

    Of course advertisers will still send unsolicited emails, and do a trade off between costs and profits (surely there are people who answer these emails, otherwise why would people be spamming)

    Alas, this doesn't address the issue of legitimate email accounts being compromised by bad people who want to send you a virus via your college friend's email account.

    Hmmmmm, lots to think about, agree?

    I don't even open the spam folder. They keep trying because cheating is the best business. Indeed, many people fall into these traps. When someone hears that he has won a humongous sum, lust for money takes control over his logical sense.

    Or if a beautiful lady wants to talk to him ... that takes control over his logical sense!

    In IT world there are professional programmers and professional hackers. And both get paid handsomely. We have to use this at our won risk.
