Hi,

Is this the right place to make a proposal to stop most spam and viruses 'at the front door' (in stead of relying on anti-spam/virus software)?

And if so, what will happen to the proposal? Will it reach the forum in any form?

Thanks.

Find a workshop or main session in which you would like the proposal to be made, and I will make sure someone is at that session to pass it on for you.  Otherwise, email the workshop  or session convenor or moderator direct and make sure they raise it at the session.

We are still working on finding the best procedure, but those ideas are a start anyway.

Alas I did not check back here after 2 days of no reply, but still interested in a platform for my proposal.

A dynamic coalition on spam was formed in Athens, you could try contacting them and perhaps joining in their work, see StopSpamAlliance http://www.stopspamalliance.org/

Hi,

To stop SPAM, should we block SPAM at the source?  ie:  ISP, carrier etc...

In theory, if all ISP actively block only SPAM generate from its' own network. Would this help?

I hear of Canada already start with this idea.
