Spam Oozes Past Border Patrol So finally Congress is getting around to dealing with the problem of Internet spam. But it's way too late, as a list of the most prolific 100 Usenet spam hosts reveals that 52 of them are now offshore. Sites in Russia, France, Greece and the Netherlands are among the worst foreign offenders. If you have Outlook, just set up a filter to ignore them. Other email programs have similar features. If you have AOL or any other provider that charges you for receiving email, my condolences. Regardless of mail provider and mail program, I don't know that there's going to be anything else any of us can do, even in the long run.
