We've found the perfect solution to spam

Mirko Zorz

The Internet Research Task Force's (IRTF) quest for an effective solution to
spam has struck gold in the form of IT specialist Mark McCarron.
The IRTF's Anti-Spam Research Group (ASRG) mailing list has over the course
of the last month carried details of Mr McCarron's remarkable Global ISP
Email Identity System (GIEIS) system which he has devised over six years to
provide a global system to stop not only spam but also viruses, worms and
inappropriate content such as porn.

The system, if adopted, is predicted to bring in revenues of nearly £50
billion and create two million jobs. It would certainly prove controversial
however, since it would mean abolishing the accepted email and news
protocols SMTP and NNTP and involve the introduction of a centralised
authentication point for all emails.

The remarkable plan has already caused some trouble on the ASRG list, with
chair Peter Judge restricting Mr McCarron's access claiming that he was
over-posting. Mr McCarron has retaliated by accusing Mr Judge of having a
clear conflict of interests since he works for anti-spam company
