National columnist Jacquelyn Mitchard is taking her email address out of circulation because of spammers.
This is the same problem as us common-folk have; perhaps someone important will care about her, though.
Ultimately this is probably going to boil down to people being assigned an IP address the day they are born so as to fix and secure Internet communications. Pair this with a “do not spam” registration database and you have the only real solution to the problem.
So much for privacy. Don’t tell John Ashcroft about this idea!
