1. Macroeconomic effect from email filtering: Monopolistic pressures
There wasn't any comments on the Last-Call about the implications to
individual or small companies, particularly ones in small emerging
market countries. It's refreshing to see such a question being
brought up during an IESG evaluation.
Does the IETF community believe that the following text (see IESG
Evaluation) is appropriate:
"If a recipient selects one or more vouch-for domains, and uses the
results of vouching to adjust spam scores on incoming email, that
recipient is placing a great deal of operational trust and power
in the selected vouch-for service operators. Recipients are strongly
encouraged to select such services with care. Further, recipients
are strongly encouraged to select more than one vouch-for service to
avoid a single-point-of-failure and to avoid placing excessive trust
and power in a single vouch-for service operator."
What about senders from small emerging market countries having a very
hard time getting any widely accepted assurance group to vouch for them?
