Stop Street Spam

| February 11, 2002

Stop Street Spam, Web site review by Kate Garsombke,
Signs advertising weight-loss programs and work-from-home scams may have proliferated, but one group has organized to fight the annoying placards that have become eyesores on street corners and telephone poles in major cities across the country. Citizens Against Ugly Street Spam vows to find illegal advertisements and yank them down '10 times faster' than any street spammer can put them up. Instead of ripping signs down, some 'Sharks' cut out the phone numbers on the signs, rendering the ad useless. But CAUSS is careful to make exceptions for garage sales and other speech because they are community events, not commercial enterprises. The CAUSS Web site also has forums for every state in which Sharks can share their stories of spam-jamming.
