I just heard on the news that as of today all email that contains "sexually explicit" content has to be marked with the term in the subject. Has anyone heard of this? This is the first I had heard of it.

If it's true, I wonder how do you enforce such a law when (some) spam comes relayed from servers overseas.

That was my thought. I doubt it is a "universal" law wich seems to be the biggest problem with trying to set up any type of internet law.
