Using a strong notion of identity to control spam

This seems inevitable to me — Techno-News Blog — we need a stronger system of identity on the net if we really want to stop spam. I would switch to a mailsystem today that had a stronger notion and in fact I am evaluating all kinds of solutions currently.

Update: Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha. So I decided to start acting on my words and I thought I’d get a certificate so I could start signing all my email sent from Outlook. I clicked on the link in Outlook to get a certificate and I was take to this page — my guess is that NO ONE tries to get certificates for Outlook based on this.
