I wonder about that. If a change of policy and tolerance in the US 
towards these lowlifes meant that they started to get locked up, if spam 
was to be treated like DVD piracy and the US Gov sent delegations to 
other countries and demanded action, would the volume drop 
significantly? In most cases it is relatively easy to "follow the money" 
and fine those who benefit. The exception to those is the stock spams 
which try to influence the market, but again, probably easy enough to 
see the patterns and find out who is gaining from the scams.

If the US Gov. gave a damn about spam, I think we would see a dramatic 
reduction in volume and the hard core spammers looking for other work.
