Good Spam or Bad Spam...What is the Difference?

Written by Sara Hardy

Also, keep in mind thatrepparttar Scarecrow in us does not ALWAYS remember every email we sign up for. It is possible to have signed up for something and a week later be flipping out because you are getting email from some unknown. If we only had a brain sometimes (Speaking for myself, of course).

It is also highly possible that someone is having fun subscribing you to things. Never count that one out, it happens all ofrepparttar 132765 time.

GOOD vs BAD Personally, I would much rather get good spam. Bad spam demonstrates thatrepparttar 132766 sender KNOWS what is not acceptable and went to all of this trouble and expense to hide behind this long trail of fake addresses. That they tookrepparttar 132767 time to do that is malicious, in my way of thinking. Do they really think that what they are trying to sell in this manner is actually worth it? These arerepparttar 132768 people we should be upset with. These arerepparttar 132769 people that we need to be telling, "I'll get you my pretty, and your little server too!"

So, whether you agree or disagree, just try to keep in mind that 1. The whole world is not out to get you. 2. Not every piece of spam is sent withrepparttar 132770 same intent. And... 3. Asrepparttar 132771 world around us continues to change, we will be seeing more and more companies resorting to sending their junk mail through email rather thenrepparttar 132772 post office. (I think this is becoming a more desirable thing to us all, as it would be much safer.)

Now isrepparttar 132773 time to try to adjust our view and approachrepparttar 132774 issue with a level head. If we don't we will drive ourselves mad, and for what purpose? The changes in our world causerepparttar 132775 internet to change. Soon you probably will find yourself saying, "I don't think we're in Kansas anymore".
