With 80-90% of email being spam, how about the radical idea that ICANN
enforce  ?

ICANN can no longer deny evidence produced by Knujon that approximately 20
registrars are responsible for registration 90%+ Spam sites.
These same registrars pretty much get away with ignoring public delisting
requests of the serial spammers who exploit this ENORMOUS loophole.

Perhaps it is time to ACTUALLY enforce registrars who serially register Spam
sites (?):

The Registrar's Agreement states:

" The Registered Name Holder shall represent that, to the best of the

Registered Name Holder's knowledge and belief, neither the registration of
the Registered Name nor the manner in which it is directly or indirectly
used infringes the legal rights of any third party."

Like it or not, ICANN is the only agency that can impact global spamming.
No one expects ICANN to be involved in a case-by-case basis BUT serial
violators (clearly documented by Knujon)  should NOT be able to circumvent
the system the way they currently do.
Letters of warning ??
How many thousands of fake drug sites does it take to establish a pattern

Words like "serial spam site registration", "public accountability",
"transparency of operation", "ethics"  would be nice to see in the draft
proposed change to the agreement.
