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!

Did everyone get that? Even if YOU are innocent, YOU
are really GUILTY, because of some MORON’S idiocy!
YOU are NOW going to pay the price for “anyone” who
spammed from your ISP (the bigger they are, the more
chance of that happening). Anyone who spammed from
your Web Host. And if anyone owned @xyz.com before
you did, you also get to “pay the piper” for their actions.

If you use a third party service to mail out your ezine or
newsletter and their company is blacklisted, well guess
what? Some people just won’t be receiving it anymore!
I actually found that out, when I used a well known third
party ezine delivery service. And upon consulting them
about this, I ended up cancelling my account due to the
lack of company concern about the situation.

Thinking about registering that domain name? Or are
you going to jump on some fantastic web hosting deal?
Or are you contemplating switching ISP’s for a better
rate? Or considering using a Third Party Service for
mailing out your ezine? Better think again and do your
history on them all, because the Anti-Spam Fanatics
ARE making business online a Living NIGHTMARE!

If you have been falsely accused of spamming or are
now being blocked because of it, you CAN fight back!
Go to: http://www.e-crucible.org and file your complaint,
as there is a pending lawsuit against “Anti-Spammers”,
ISP’s and hosts that utilize these programs.
