    Mike & Charlies digi-eStamp idea gets copied
    Seems like Yahoo and AOL and the Goodmail.com folks are stirring up some controversy by circumventing my 2002 Digi eStamp spam stopping solution.

    sample... http://www.iht.com/articles/2006/02/...ness/email.php

    Guess that's why so many tune into ABW to get answers to the internets most tricky questions on muzzling the cookie cannons and Adwhores.

    Funny this is the hottest subject going in the online marketing industry and ABW is moot on the issue. We can't have that many free e-mail spammers here threatened by having to place something worth 1/10th of a cent in their e-mail blasts.!

    that probably means that you cannot use your company email address to send email even to your love ones without being charged.

    so, what's next? yahoo-to-yahoo emailing is free but not hotmail-to-yahoo?

    spammers will still find a way to get around it while the regular consumers will not get their emails across.

    and the worst thing is ...

    charging spammers to send email to their subscribers actually legitimizes spamming. and we'll end up with more spam than before. the only difference is that Yahoo will now be earning money. and the more spam it receives, the more money it earns.

    hahaha

    If you can't beat them, join them.


    time to go myself into the spamming business. hey! it's now legit!

    Ignorance of the entire Digi-eStamp solution leads to all types of misconceptions.

    or **** http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread...ht=digi-eStamp and then search the old forum for older posts on digi estamps as I posted them on other forums for discussion while sending the proposal to the FTC for review.

    that issue has been around for decades. i'm not for it.

    our main email folder will soon be cluttered with pay for emails while our own legit nonpaid emails will go straight to the junk folder.

    Go Google.

    pretty obvious that the lack of response is due to ignore lists in effect...

    ...hey, this reminds me of seeing my idea copied... it's this device that lets you uses a microphone, speaker and wires... a kind of telephonic device if you will...
