I happen to appreciate a long term relationship with my email address and I do not appreciate others abusing it like they did!


Know what you mean BOTA, I purchased my first domain a few years ago, and setup the website, setup a personal email address (Never subscribed to ANYTHING), and found after a year I was averaging 150 spams a day. Go away on holiday and you're spending an hour just downloading junk email. (back in the 56k days)

In Japan I hear they were experimenting with the idea of setting up a payment system. When you send an email you get charged 0.01 or something close to that amount. When the email is received by the recipient, they choose whether to refund the amount.

Spamers send out thousand of emails at a time, imagine if you will 0.01 x 6 million = 60,000. Yeah sure, some companies may pay this amount to the spammer for the service, but they simply wouldn't be able to afford to keep doing it. Plus it would't be worth the risk for the spammer.
Was watching a documentary about spamming. In an interview with an unnamed spammer he admitted to having a database of 6 billion active email accounts.

Another great ploy by spammers, try hit the unsubscribe button at the bottom, and watch your spam increase. You click that link and they know your account is active. (Plus you always find the link is *broken*, or there isn't a submit button. FACT)

With this block in mind: and a little free advertising Wink , I am working on an Enemy Territory resource site, www.Wolf-ET.net, www.Wolf-ET.com.

I plan on allowing people to setup email accounts 9.95 per year, free for awhile tho, till we get a few registered members.

Keep checking to above site, or PM me if you want your own summin@Wolf-ET.net, or summin@Wolf-ET.com emails.

Will be at least 2 weeks from now till I will be able to release emails. Still have to get hosting sorted out.
