Beginners Guides: Stopping Spam - Beginners Guides: Stopping Spam
Tue, January 20 2004 | 7:09PM | PermaLink Feedback?
According to one recent opinion, over 45% of all email sent over the Internet is unwanted and uninvited. This is a conservative estimate, we would say. While an average email account may start out pristine and useful, it quickly accumulates layers of spam like the age rings of a tree, until the whole thing collapses under its own weight. Private addresses are bad enough, but lord help you if you function with a public email address like we do. So what to do about it? Many processes have been set in motion to declare spam illegal, but as yet no law exists to really regulate it. Even the recently enacted "Can Spam Act" in the United States offers only legal distinctions between what is, and isn't, a legal commercial email format. The best way of dealing with spam currently is through avoidance and redirection. If you use email, sooner or later you will start receiving spam; but if you can redirect this spam to a location where you don't have to look at it, it won't do you any harm. It's sort of like the 'if a tree falls in the forest...' question. If spam lands in an inbox, and no one is there to read it, does it really exist? Answer is, who cares?
