Oracle Tips by Burleson 

Web Stalkers
Chapter 13 - Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam


Spam e-mail is a part of life for Internet users, and can be the source of great frustration if a solution is not found and implemented.  This chapter has presented ways to deal with the issue of spam.  Some of the salient points are as follows:

  • Suspected spam should be deleted.

  • Suspected spam should never receive a reply.

  • Internet Best Practices should be implemented.

  • Spam filtering programs and services should be used to authenticate e-mail.

While there have been legislative efforts made to regulate the out of control world of spam, it is only legitimate bulk e-mailers that abide by new rules as they are passed.  Many spammers operate below the radar screen and are already engaging in criminal practice.  These types of spammers are not likely to adhere to additional regulations.

The more likely solution to the e-mail problem will come through the education of consumers.  As the population becomes increasingly Internet savvy and learns to detect and avoid fraud and scams, the amount of money to be made by engaging in these activities will decrease.  As profits fall, so will motivation to engage in the practice, and spammers may begin to consider other ways to spend their time.

Book Conclusion

The saying goes “knowledge is power.” By publication of this book the hope was to arm the reader with knowledge of the perils that may exist while using the Internet as well as tools to use to avoid becoming a victim.

The Internet offers seemingly innumerable opportunities for learning, communication, and commerce. It is a shame that some unscrupulous individuals have taken a resource developed to improve communication and share information and turned it into an outlet for fraud, coercion, and corruption. By remaining cautious, using some of the tips and tricks provided in this book, and using common sense, the Internet user can safely navigate the Internet for its intended purpose and have an enjoyable experience. Happy surfing!
