For years I've been operating under the belief that spam is unsolicited (commercial) email and I thought the Can Spam Act of 2003 interpreted it this way.

In my mind, all that proposal crap that you didn't sign up for that finds its way into your inbox is, was or should be in violation of the Can Spam Act.

I got a little curious earlier today and as I read deeper I see that it doesn't state that they may not infiltrate your inbox, only that they must comply with various, hard to enforce, rules which include providing an easy opt-out mechanism.

Feedback? Interpretation?
