It is a wrong assumption to equate commercial email with bulk email.
Which is why you're trying to rewrite how bulk email is done in order to deal
with *one segment* of commercial e-mail. Now I understand fully.
No I am trying to eliminate (drastically reduce) spam (UBE). And, I am trying
to give receivers the ability to opt-in and opt-out of all legitimate bulk
email under their own power.
In my mind, that is more important than existing legitimate bulk email
paradigm. I can understand you and other's vested interest in existing
legitimate bulk email paradigm, but I don't agree it is more important.
When spam is 99% of all email you recieve, you may begin to care also. It
won't be too long from now...
Fortunately what this discussion is proving to me so far, is that architectual
change will be resisted fiercely by vested groups that control the design of
the internet. This means that my new (soon to be patent pending) algorithm for
http://AntiViotic.com will have a near monopoly in the market. So for me and
users of my service it will be great. But for the rest of users, spammers will
be forced to actually increase the amount of email they send in the
self-feeding model of my algorithm. Unfortunately, the rest of the email
universe will be imploded by an accelerating rate of spam. Just imagine what
spammers will do when confronted with an insubvertable algorithm that can
detect bulk. I came here to see if there was a better way, but I guess we will
have to do it the hard way (and very profitable for me). This is all
conjecture (vaporware) at this point...but very well researched conjecture.
I'll be back here in this list later (probably a year from now) when your needs
have changed to a more dire state regarding email.
