I'm no fan of spam but we all get snail mail ads don't we? Shouldn't
advertisers of a possibly good product be allowed to e-mail
Certainly they should. They simply should not be allowed to send it
to unwilling parties.

I've been in tele-marketing for 5 years. There's a controversial business.
No one likes to be woken up early in the morning. There's a federal law that
says that if someone wants to be put on the "do not call list" they can't be
contacted again, kind of like an opt-out policy, personally I think that's
the way to go.
I've received pornographic spam for a while I don't even bother to look
at anymore, because I know if I choose to opt-out, it doesn't do me any
good, I keep receiving the e-mail. I've tried I know a dozen times to get
off the mail list and it's useless. This is wrong.
