Spam Filtering—Killing The Patient To Cure The Disease?

OK, everyone hates junk e-mail and wants to do something about it. Since we’re in the newsletter publishing business, we deal with this on a daily basis and are noticing a disturbing trend.

Basically, anti-spam efforts are choking the life out of e-mail.

Here’s what’s happening. Spam is a continual nuisance and Newsletter Reader [1] .

3. End users (that’s us) complain to our ISPs that we are not getting our e-mail correctly. In my opinion, we should NEVER EVER have even a single piece of e-mail filtered that we wanted in our inbox—period. That’s the standard we should set (and the way I think it will be).

What good is e-mail going to be if you can no longer rely on it?
