The United Nations said at a meeting last week in Geneva, Switzerland, that the preservation of the Internet relies on putting a stop to spam. In remarks at a symposium on spam hosted by the International Telecommunications Union, meeting chair Robert Horton said it's "critical that all organizations make an urgent, concerted effort on spam." According to Horton, regulators, software makers, and the Internet industry have the means to stymie spam. "As regulators, we should set a target of two years to bring spam under control. The world can't wait any longer than that."
