Gates: Buy stamps to send e-mail

Microsoft’s Bill Gates is suggesting that computer users should be required to buy “stamps” in order to send e-mail. “If the U.S. Postal Service delivered mail for free, our mailboxes would surely runneth over with more credit-card offers, sweepstakes entries, and supermarket fliers. That’s why we get so much junk e-mail: It’s essentially free to send. So Microsoft chairman Bill Gates, among others, is now suggesting that we start buying ‘stamps’ for e-mail.”
