Keeping an eye on CAN-Spam

For what is perhaps the first time in recorded history, mere registered voters and other mortals will be able to track the effectiveness of legislation. Meet the CAN-Spam Monitor, a weekly statistical tabulation of spam traffic that does not comply with the CAN-Spam act. This free promotional tool, built by Commtouch Software, also tracks the number of new spam outbreaks over the same period of time. Pretty nifty stuff.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, the score thus far: Spammers 99%, CAN-Spam 1%. Go Team!
