If it's unsolicited, bulk, and email, that's spam. I never check
to see who sent them and never read them - so natch they get
reported. If a gvt critter is stupid enough to spam, he's not
going to get my vote anyway, and he has no business trespassing
on MY paid-for account, regardless of who it is. I've gotten
plenty of political spams, but so far none of them legit; all
forged. THAT is spam!
Now, were I to see a name I recognized, I might check it to
see if it's sent via spam tactics, and if not, all I'd do is chew
out the critter and let him know what would happen next time he
sends me one. And then I'd follow up. It is not MY
responsibility to be sure that trespassers are gvt crits; not by
a long shot!
Two cents max.
