    Hasn't anyone ever figured out that all FREEBEE sites are just mosquettos spreading the disease called spamm and parasitic downloads. Someone tell me how Opt-out brokered lists is any different than plain old spamm lists. None of the millions of receiving this type of spamm even remember getting on the list and they cannot opt-out without triggering their e-mail account is active for the second sewer level of spammers.

    It's not the affiliate freebee sites doing the spamming ..it's your choice of merchants you send your visitors too that are spam farmers. Want to guess how many "get your free..whatever.." domains are on the ISP blacklists for spamming activities. How do merchants monetize- FREE- in the pay per performance industry...by selling off privacy information. Collecting lead fees from known fronts to spammers makes you the poorly paid mosquitto spreading the disease.

    A regular spam list has addresses that may have come from anywhere, and may or may not be valid.

    But an Opt-Out list is made up of the addresses of people who have tried to cancel spam from some other source. So even though it's clear the people don't want spam--with more of a distaste for it than most (or they wouldn't have bothered opting out in the first place), the addresses are verified as active.

    Personally I think this would be a list of 100% non-buyers, but apparently some spammers are so desperate just to get valid addresses that they think that having a verified list is worthwhile even if it is made up of people who DO NOT want the ad and probably won't buy sheet!

    This is obviously a targeted mailing list for "eliminate spam" and "report spammers" products.
