    I just read this article and I found it quite funny. It really does sum up the level of competence shown by the majority of British politicians.

    Stop spammers in their tracks

    My favorite part was "and trust spammers to never lie about their email addresses."

    Well our government just made it illegal to spoof email addresses. That will surely stop spammers.:rolleyes:

    I sent him a thought about his suggestion, it read:

    "Dear Mr. Wyatt,

    You are a f*ckwit.

    Track this."

    and I anonymously remailed it through Honk Kong.
