http://screaming-penguin.com/main.php?storyid=3352 says that Microsoft is on the wrong side of this issue.

Actually, Microsoft is NOT against stopping spam, it's just that they want to collect some money for helping you do it. Enlightened self-interest (which isn't really the phrase I'd like to use) says that when you see an opportunity to pile up some cash, you should oppose someone else's idea that doesn't line your pockets.

I don't entirely disagree with the Senator quoted in the article, but I'm not sure her bill would do any good. I'm not sure Microsoft's concept is worth anything either, so I guess I'm sitting on some other fence entirely.

An atheist is just somebody who feels about Yahweh the way any decent Christian feels about Thor or Baal or the golden calf. As has been said before, we are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further. (Richard Dawkins)
