Anti Spam Fanatics ARE RUINING YOUR Business! by Laurie Rogers
Many marketers online are seriously doubting that "Anti- Spam Fanatics" are ruining thier businesses. I have a bit of news for you, IF YOU currently hold that "mindset", it is time for a rude awakening! Not only are they killing newsletters and ezines with a variety of filtering software programs, they're also black listing domains, ISP's and web hosts.
Don't think so you say? Check out a few of these sites: http://mailwww.cern.ch/spam/SpamDomains.html or http://www.spamhaus.org or this http://mail-abuse.org/ Better yet, go to a search engine type in "Spam Filters" you will be amazed at how many listings there are. Now what exactly do these sites do?
They collect Domain, Hosting and ISP information and BLACKLIST it. For instance, if a domain, ISP or hosting company has a lot of "spammers" as clients, they'll then put that company on a "Blacklist". So that ANY person (guilty or innocent) using that ISP, Domain or Web Host can NOT send any email what so ever to certain parties.
Now incase you didn't get that, I'll explain it in a simpler form. Let's say you own domain @xyz.com and you are trying to send an email to @abc.com, BUT @abc.com uses M.A.P.S ( http://mail-abuse.org/ ) to block out any "spammers" from reaching their clients. Now, let's say your Web Host had a few "spammers" on their servers at one point, guess what? You will NOT be able to send any email to @abc.com!

Before you start reading this article, I need to clear something up. We're not talking about people that gather in fall to pick all those luscious goodies out of gardens every year! I am sorry to disappoint you, I am sure that would have made for a pretty interesting topic, and they probably do not get credit they deserve. But I have something a lot MORE exciting to talk about.
Today, we're going to talk about all of wonderful folks who LOVE to go around picking email addresses! You must know who I am talking about now?

You really have to give them credit, because harvesting email addresses takes talent to do, not to mention brains! I can't for life of me imagine how stressful a "business" like that must be. "Well today was a bad day, I ONLY got 17,369 addresses". You have to feel sorry for him don't cha? He must be having a hard time grasping concept! He'd better start learning from Pro's,
