Singapore Joins the Anti-Spam Brigade

Singapore has announced that it is considering anti-spam legislation – although, with 90% of spam received by Singaporeans originating from outside their country (similar to Australia’s situation) it’s hard to see just what legislating will do. Given the Singapore government’s penchent for floggings and other corporal punishment, if the legislation gets up, I’m not sure I’d be willing to take the chance. Being fined for sending spam is one thing. Being publicly flogged is another.
