UK legalizes Bluespam

Just when the U.S. goes and punishes its spammers, those wacky Brits go an give it the OK. Bluespam, for those unfamiliar with it, is the ridiculously annoying process of sending spam and advertising messages via Bluetooth. Technically, they didn’t specify that it was OK, but rather, they removed Bluetooth as a medium that requires opt-in from consumers, allowing unsolicited spam to be delivered at will. The part that baffles us when it comes to spam is who on Earth actually clicks on those things? Aren’t they annoying to virtually everyone? Then again, it only takes one to keep spammers in a “justified” mindset. We just hope the U.S. continues to fight spammers, not open more doors for them.
