RE: AOL scomp
The whole thing is functionally inept. Our abuse department constantly has to chase down users and half the time it turns out they were sending email to their friends and the people at AOL reported the mail as spam because half of the Internet population believes that any email that they don't find interesting is spam, and that if you aunt sends you a funny forward that isn't considered spam, and my abuse department doesn't need to track down a 75 year old woman from Zanesville, OH to tell her to knock it off. But that's just my honest opinion. -Drew -----Original Message----- From: [email protected] [mailto:[email protected]] On Behalf Of [email protected] Sent: Thursday, February 24, 2005 12:40 PM To: Matt Taber Cc: [email protected] Subject: Re: AOL scomp On Thu, 24 Feb 2005 12:28:58 EST, Matt Taber said: > It's too bad that about 1/3 of the reported mails are valid opt-in lists. Proof that any network management or security or anti-spam scheme that implies end users with functional neurons is doomed from the get-go.
