It appears the use of 'Black Lists' are being implemented more and more.
SPAM SUCKS, but is a legitamate enterprise, that cannot be controlled by legislation.
YET, more and more mail servers and IP's are black listed, and then blocked by the ISP's from their paid customers.
Take eNom for example....
One of the largest registrars of domain names in the world.
over 2,500,000 TLD's registered, and twice that in hosted DNS's.
Almost a half a billion DNS queries and over a million emails forwarded, PER DAY!
Unfortunatly, due to ISP's determining that they are the best people to decide what is best for their paying customers, ISP's are fingering IP's at
an alarming rate, and in doing so, are blocking the mail servers that the registrar uses to merely redirect emails from.
Keep in mind I am only using two different companies as example, but this is currently prevailent among almost all ISP's and Registrar's in the
Road Runner is one of them. They are beginning to block the mail coming thru enom's mail servers, only becouse of a website that has forwarded spam
thru them. Enom has made considerable concessions and adjustments to their systems to accomidate Road Runner demands, and in the end, RR has done
nothing to release the server blocks in place.
This is no different than shutting down a gun manufacturer, becouse some thug used one of their guns to kill somebody.
SPAM SUCKS, and becouse of it we are being 'protected' from the evils, and many times dont even know it.
I say SPAM BE FREE...let it happen, if it was an industry that could not make money from their customers ads, then it would cease to exist.
If you want spam to stop, quit clicking on the banners, and quit buying things from the spammer's clients.
Note: I am not a spammer nor involved in the industry, yet I use enom as a registrar for my domain names, and as a result am many times effected by
this filtering of my emails, to someone else, becouse the ISP they use thinks it is spam.
This censorship must stop, and should not be tolerated by anyone, as it is a legal enterprise. The National do not call list is dealing with this
issue right now in court, and will probubly be greatly modified to remain legal. In the end it will be up to the consumer to pay for this blind
'protection', and that is the correct way to do it.
You might reply,..well you should get a different registrar, or a new ISP...that isnt the point.
Censorship IS the point. They have no right to block something that they deem inappropriate for me.
And even then, anybody, anyone, please demonstrate to me that there are ISP's that dont block, or use black lists. I would be real suprised to see
any followup on that statement.
