(A) The name, physical address, electronic mail address, and telephone number of person who initiates transmission of message.
(B) The name, physical address, electronic mail address, and telephone number of person who created content of message, if different from information under subparagraph (A).
(C) A statement that further transmissions of unsolicited commercial electronic mail to recipient by person who initiates transmission of message may be stopped at no cost to recipient by sending a reply to originating electronic mail address with word `remove' in subject line. ------------------------
How many messages citing this "Law" as justification for sending you SPAM contain items in Para. (2)(A) & (B). I haven't seen any out of 1000's I received. In fact, in those that I try to send a message back to, reply address is usually invalid.
Plus, even though they furnish you with a means at end of message to "Remove" yourself from mailings, it is usually a false address or url when you actually try to remove yourself.
This type of mis-information spreads like wildfire once someone makes it up and pretty soon everybody takes it for truth. It is similar to all those emails, forwarded by thousands, proclaiming that Microsoft is going to pay you over $200 for each person you forward message to.
The use of this statement of "Law" in sending unsolicited email advertisements does not diminish fact that they are still SPAM no matter how a mailer tries to camouflage his or her efforts. It should also make you think twice, no matter how great offer looks, about integrity of individual and/or company sending it to you and whether you want to deal with them..
