      There’s nothing wrong with arguing against CAN-SPAM (it has many problems!), but try to resist fabricating a narrative where it only has disadvantages.

      Sender pays (even if only cents) is the reason your physical letterbox isn’t buried in a pile of mail. Making law abiding corporations behave themselves and not overload your mail provider is an unambiguous win (they weren’t gonna do it on their own).

      There are legitimate uses for bulk marketing email. For example advertising to a targeted email list, services which those people might find useful. This would be a great tool for small businesses, but CAN-SPAM makes it illegal.

      Not illegal, if recipients opt in and have the option of unsubscribing. There are many online services who can run the technology for you if implementing unsubscribe yourself is too high a bar to clear.
