Full UDP was announced against PacBell on 6 Sept 2001, scheduled to go into effect on 13 Sept. Update: postponed two days in wake of attacks in New York city. Update: 14 Sept: spam levels are way down; PacBell may be complying. See also Pacbell.net UDP Averted! web page.
If your ISP is a usenet news peer with Pacific Bell, you may want to consider terminating that relationship.

Pac Bell has allgedly taken a pro-spam stance, as indicated by this letter reposted to the net (article Pacbell.net says "spam is OK, we won't stop it")

[ text of spam deleted ] __________________ My [Starr McFarland's] response: Unfortunately, there is no law yet which regulates email. We cant filter it out because we dont know whether you would want to receive it. 1. Try not to give out your email address while you are online. Anytime you fill out a form and type in your email address, you increase the chances of your email address ending up on a mailing list. 2. Email the postmaster from where the email came. For instance, if the mail came from email@example.com, forward it and a complaint to firstname.lastname@example.org. (In this case, it looks like it would be email@example.com) 3. You could get an email program with a good filtering system. Theres a lot of mail client programs out there that you can check out. 4. Most of us simply trash junk email as soon as we get it. Just like you do with more traditional snail mail. Here is an interesting URL you can check out that was used in an article on combating SPAM on the Internet that you may find useful: http://www.compulink.co.uk/~net-services/spam/ I hope this helps you, Sincerely, Starr McFarland Technical Analyst-Pacific Bell Internet 1-800-708-INET firstname.lastname@example.orgSee also this article from Jan, 2002: Pacbell: No spam laws exist, so eat up!
