What is SPAM? An e-mail is considered SPAM if… Just allow the cancellation of the messages? And a warning like "This message can not be considered SPAM“? Whats wrong with SPAM? SPAM is not the same as the mail advertising? Reject SPAM is not a form of censorship?
By raising some questions to clarify the readers about what is SPAM and how to act before him. Demonstrate that the spread of SPAM is a wrong attitude.
This term is used regularly to describe unsolicited email sent in bulk. A message is an unsolicited email message sent to someone who did not give their consent to receive it. A message sent in bulk is a message of identical content sent to a large number of recipients.
An e-mail is considered spam if: has not been requested by the recipient and has been forwarded by weight. Messages of first contact, requests for quotes and job applications are examples of unsolicited messages, but are not SPAM (assuming they are not sent in bulk). Subscription newsletters, mailing lists and customer communications are examples of messages sent in bulk, but are not SPAM (assuming there is consent of the recipients).
It is not because of allowing the recipient to cancel the receipt of messages that the spam stops being SPAM. Messages sent in bulk always requires consent of recipients.
These warnings are completely absurd. Now, the fashion in Portugal is to put something like this in SPAM: “This email is intended solely to inform potential customers and can not be considered SPAM. “ passing: “The email could not be considered as SPAM include a form of the receptor to be removed from the list.” to the hilarious: “We are against spam, if you do not wish to receive this newsletter, click here.” The only good thing is that these warnings allow us to easily identify these messages as SPAM same.
Sending SPAM is an unethical practice that constitutes an attack on freedom of users to email and the Internet in general. Unlike unsolicited advertising paper that we received in mailboxes physical (and can even refuse with a simple sticker), the sending of SPAM has a negligible cost to anyone who sends him, but have high costs to the recipient: Users spend a lot of time to identify the spam in your mailbox, which decreases their productivity. Users can easily lose legitimate messages in the middle of SPAM or blocked by the increasingly aggressive anti-spam filters.
The networks are clogged by spam (more than 90% of all e-mail), which requires the e-mail providers to spend more time and resources. Costs that will be seen on the end users (through price increase or degradation of service quality). SPAM is a major means to spread viruses and trojans that affect the safety of all Internet users.
SPAM is an attack on freedom of users, as obligesthem to consult messages that never asked to receive. Its as if people were forced to flee into the house all the vendors and only after they show the product they sell is that people could ask them to leave.
In Portugal, unfortunately, the SPAM is legal provided it is sent to legal persons. However, although it may be legal, it is still unethical and justice. Furthermore, the sending of SPAM constitutes breach of the rules of the overwhelming majority of ISP (although many ISPs are diligent in some sense to enforce the rules themselves and others to condone the sending of SPAM).
Não, o custo do correio postal não-solicitado é suportado pelo remetente, enquanto, que o custo do correio electrónico não-solicitado enviado em massa é suportado sobretudo pelo destinatário. No caso do correio postal não-solicitado, os custos que lhe estão associados são, desde logo, um factor que contribui para a sua limitação. Além disso, em Portugal, qualquer pessoa pode muito facilmente recusar a publicidade na caixa de correio postal, colocando um autocolante a indicar que não pretende publicidade.
Not at all. Freedom of speech gives people the right to express themselves freely, but it gives them the right to compel others to listen to them, thats what spammers do. Who wants to advertise their products must support itself costs of advertising and use the proper channels, instead of letting the expense and inconvenience to recipients.
Note: When you forward a message, please: 1. Erase my name, and address. 2. Delete the address of the friends before resubmitting. 3. Forward as a blind copy (Bcc: or Bcc :) to your recipients. Acting always like that, we hinder the spread of viruses, spam and banners
After reading this lesson should have been clear about: What is SPAM; How to proceed; What is SPAM that is wrong; SPAM is not the same as the mail advertising and Reject SPAM is not a form of censorship.
