At the behest of the Federal Trade Commission, a federal court has ordered a company to stop sending â€œdate lonely wifeâ€ spam e-mail. The spam, according to the FTC, "violates nearly every provision of the CAN-SPAM Act. It contains misleading headers and deceptive subject lines. It does not contain a link to allow consumers to opt out of receiving future spam, does not contain a valid postal address, and does not contain the disclosure, required by law, that it is sexually explicit." Umm, I hate to burst the bubble of any lonely guys who fell for this, but I doubt it leads to any actual dates, either.
