ChooseYourMail.com president and Spam Recycling Center (SRC) founder Ian Oxman delivered one million spams to Congressman Gary Miller, sponsor of the “Can Spam Act.”

Miller will deliver those spams to a representative of the Federal Trade Commission during a congressional hearing. The focus of the press conference Tuesday as the flood of pornographic spam hitting email accounts daily.

“Congressman Miller, I hope that these one million spams will help you illustrate to the other committee members the important of quick action on the spam problem,” said Oxman.

“Unless the federal government gives email users the tools they need to protect themselves, this problem will only grow.”

“Spam emails with adult content are flooding email boxes across the Internet,” said Oxman. “Every parent should be concerned about the solicitations that are appearing on their home computers.”

Most disturbing were emails from “sticky” Web sites that deliver adult content even after the user chooses not to enter the site, he said.

“Some of these sites being advertised will capture your computer screen with just one click on a hyperlink,” said Oxman. “The user is lured to a front page and when they try to back out, pop-up consoles capture the users browser and flood the computer screen with graphic pornographic images.”

The Spam Recycling Center is a volunteer grassroots public education and anti-spam effort to fight unsolicited commercial email.

The SRC is a sponsored by ChooseYourMail.com, the Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial Email and the Forum for Responsible and Ethical Email.
