Here’s a great idea! Let’s make a law which says that you can’t send commercial email to domains which have wireless messaging devices on the other end. So you can’t send commercial email to the email address of a celphone or pager or the likes. So far so good – great law – and in fact it goes into effect on October 18th, as one of the mandates of CAN-SPAM.
Now, to make sure that nobody accidentally sends commercial email to a wireless device, along with all the commercial email to “land email addresses” which they send, let’s publish a list of all of the domains which service wireless devices, so that nobody will send email to addresses at any of those domains.
A personal note from Aunty to the person who guesses within the nearest tenth of a second how long it will take from the moment of publication of the list to the moment a spammer imports the entire list into their database.
