Comment Stock spam works! (Score 0, Redundant) 159

Anyone (well alsmost anyone) who trades stocks is aware of these fraud tout mails and understands the liability. However problem is, you send a html link to 100 people and at least one of them will click on it because
    - he was bored and had to something/anything
    - his mouse happned to be near the link and he just cliked
    - out of sheer curiosity

And, if 100 people visit a site, at least one of them will fall prey to it at least once in 100 years :-) becasue his subconcious mind records the name of the stock.

Now, if you send 100M mails, the final number may be more than 1!

Bottomline: we need strict rules and better teck to handle spammers.
