    The UN is to lead a world standardisation into anti spam laws to make cracking down on spam easier and more effective.

    I’m glad to see that with all the problems worldwide and the ongoing scandal the UN has decided to tackle the tuff issue of spam. So nice to see that they are always willing to take on the most difficult of tasks.

    I take it that this is the view you hold of your Government too?

    Just like different departments of Government, different Agencies of the UN do different things...

    You cant attack a whole Government because one small Dept/Agencie's job isnt earthshattering.... because that is the majority of the work, the mundane stuff.

    I shant make a joke about the U.N. being perfectly matched to the task; I look forward to a short barrage of anti-spam resolutions, followed by quick withering of effort, as the powers-that-be discover their "cow" cannot be milked.*

    No doubt the US will veto it anyway.

    I doubt it.

    The U.S. at this point would, I'm sure, allow the U.N. every opportunity to enhance it's reputation as a paradigm of incompetence.

    To paraphrase: "We shan't stay the U.N. from it's appointed rounds"

    EDIT: BTW, lynx-your role has been cast.

    I doubt the USA will ratify it, they are afterall the only country in the world that didnt ratify the Convention on the Rights of Children... (except Somalia, which had no recognised Government at the time but is the process of ratifying it now I believe)...

    Even nasty Sadam and those bastions of evil in Iran and North Korea ratified that one...

    :-"







    (Some countries break them...but at least they acknowledge those Rights)





    Edit:

    Actually, now i've brought it up.....

    Can someone tell me which of the Rights of Children, the US Government objects to so fundamentaly that they wont Ratify the Convention?

    They are, for those that dont know:

    Protection from violence, abuse, hazardous employment, exploitation, abduction or sale.

    Special protection in times of war and no child under 15 should ever have to fight in an army.

    Protection from disease and famine.

    Free compulsory primary education.

    Adequate health care.

    Equal treatment regardless of gender, race or cultural background.

    Freedom to express opinions and be listened to.

    Play.
