The short answer here is: no. Spam is a big nuisance that comes into inboxes and winds up taking up productivity time and could cause viruses and spyware. Not only can it spread infection, it could allow advertisers to gain knowledge of your computer surfing habits and cause slow computer activity.
As of last week, anti-spam organizations, such as Spamhaus, got together with the Federal Trade Commission and FBI to shut down up to 50% of the spam on the Internet. It did so by shaming the spam-producers ISPs into shutting down such wrongful activity. Although their spamming ability is shut down due to a lack of Internet service, their database of e-mails is still available and not attainable by the government due to a lack of firm laws to shut such organizations down. Until there is a law against spam, spam will only be temporarily shut down.
