At 11:45 PM -0400 9/9/02, ProcMailER is rumored to have typed:
I suggest that if he is unable to properly administer his email client
that he be dropped from the list.
I suggest that _you_ lighten up, for pete's sake. I don't blame you for
not wanting to opt-in to sending him mail. I don't blame you if you drop any
future mail from him into /dev/null (this is a procmail list; if you don't
know how, ask). But I don't blame _him_ for going to a whitelisting scheme,
considering the huge amounts of spam received by our machines every day. That
he chose to send his list mail through it was certainly pretty stupid.
But if you have the time to whine to the _list_ about it instead of to the
sender (or his upstreams, if it's really that important to you) you have
_way_ too much time on your hands.
Get a hobby?
Charlie (who strongly urges you to learn the definition of "spam"
before wrongly subjecting another posting)
It is not necessary to post to me and the list. One or the other,
unless requested otherwise.
You are offbase. I have complained to his upstream, provider. As for
the definition of 'spam', find 2 people out of 100 that can give the
same definition and you will be lucky. It has become a very general
term and I feel that it fits.
And my 'whine' is upfront and in clear typewritten words. You might
learn some civility yourself.
It is possible to minimize the amount of uce/spam that you receive by
prudent use of several email accounts. Until this, I receive 2 or 3
per week and receive 500+ emails. I do not pay someone else to manage
my own problems.
Directing posts to /dev/null stops me from seeing the trash but does
not relieve the extra traffic. Kind of like an ostrich putting his
head into the sand.
I will not post pertaining to this subject to the list again. If
response is necessary, post direct.
Please have a nice day <grin>.
