Everyone on the internet is concerned about the prevalence of unsolicited email, AKA spam.
I understand their concern, but there has to be a better way to handle the situation than through the bully tactics of elitist groups such as Spam Cop.
I've been a target of their guilty until innocent tactics and no matter how many times I prove that I've spammed no one they twist the situation into it being my fault.
They remind me of the Spanish Inquisitors torturing "heretics" at the stake, the truth be damned. They twist the wording of emails to make any answer wrong.
I don't know how in a country like America where we're innocent until proven guilty, it is just the opposite with the IRS and Spam Cop.
It's like an analyst asking a patient if they still hate their mother. There is no possible way to answer correctly.
It's time for marketers to wake up to the fact that anyone is their target. They can cause you more hassles and affect your business for any reason or no reason.
Where are the advocates of free speech? Where are the advocates of free enterprise?
Wake up marketers, you could be next. You could be the next one attacked by the Spam Cop McCarthyism. Don't take your liberty for granted.
The internet is still experiencing growing pains and for some reason these individuals have appointed themselves as the internets version of Hitler's Brown Shirts.
I refuse to cave in to these elitists who feel it's their duty to tell me how I'm in the wrong no matter what the proo
to the contrary.
The media already controls the air waves. The internet is one of the only bastions of free expression left for the average person.
Don't let freedom of speech and free enterprise go onto the endangered species list because of these self - appointed
I will not go quietly and I hope you feel the same way.
If I wanted to be controlled by a dictator I'd move to Iraq.
Since I live in America, I still expect due process and I refuse to cave in to faceless terrorists.
Let freedom ring.
Wishing You Success,
