This week's winner of the Strangest Named Government Program Award is the Federal Trade Commission's Operation Spam Zombies.
From the press release:
The Federal Trade Commission and 35 government partners from more than 20 countries have targeted the technology trick used by illegal spammers to tap into consumers’ home computers and use them to send millions of pieces of illegal spam.
Huzzah. Sounds laudable, at least in spirit. The thought of 35 worldwide government agencies trying to act in a coordinated manner should at least make for an amusing spectacle.
The FTC has even knocked together a snazzy CG web site with a pleasant under-the-sea motif. But really, how did they pass up the opportunity to base the design on either or both of the thematic humdingers offered by the name of the initiative?
