A bit more on Spam


A bit more on Spam

I got a comment on my posting re Spam. Read it here.

I tend to agree – and I think the analogy in the last sentence is spot on.

"Spam is like the weeds on my lawn! You cannot get rid of it completely but can go crazy with different levels of control!"

But I can’t stress the issue enough — if you have a private email address and only want your closest confidants to be in your inbox, then that’s fine. However a business is different. We need to communicate and there are tools to enables us to do that — email is one of the best. It has its drawbacks and spam is one. Just don’t go nuts over trying to remove all the spam and my valid message at the same time.

As for faxes –I got another "complaint" yesterday. Someone gave us their fax number. We then sent them a fax. They then complained. HUH — what’s with that.
