Jim Kingdon's Anti-spam Page
Most people probably now know why unsolicited bulk email ("spam")
is bad, but if not see spam.abuse.net.
Here are my own anti-spam ideas/links:
- Filtering and blocking spam is a good idea, but the ideal filter
is shared among many sites, to spread the work and so that there is a
cleaner incentive/mechanism to get removed from the filter. See for
example SpamAssassin (including the various block lists that it can consult).
- I wrote the "How to Complain" page
which you may have seen.
- There needs to be a good guide, aimed at people whose interest
is marketing, about what one should do to sell online.
There is a lot written by marketers who don't understand the internet,
and internet denizens who don't understand marketing, but the spamcon foundation is a good place
- See Brad Templeton's spam page for fairly
lengthy thoughts on various ways to regulate spam, and why getting the
government involved is fraught with peril.
