The commissioners from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) all trekked over to Congress yesterday for an appearance before the Senate Commerce Committee.

And the agency does good work: it continues to pursue spammers, spyware purveyors, and pretexters. Unfortunately, it doesn’t pursue many of them.
