Re: Where's the EU when you need them?

There should be a way (similar to other privacy EU initiatives) to force governments, companies, institutions, etc to really, REALLY VERIFY that all email addresses given are valid and connected to the intended recipient. This should be enforced by a nice and tidy little sum to be paid by said governments, companies, institutions etc as a penalty to the hapless victim if they don't get it right.

Well *THAT'S* no good. Because when somestupidcompany.com *insists* I provide them with an email address and I have no reason to give them one, I wouldn't be able to provide the email address of feck.you@somestupidcompany.com.
