To the Commissionars, I just want to say this: I can see that you guys are indeed trying to fix this SPAM thing and better our email technology, but I feel strongly that you are all going about it the WRONG way!! I mean, yes our email system has issues. We have to deal with Spam, email snoopers, and theft issues. So what can be done about all of this? Well, what if instead of trying to repair an UNFIXABLE email system, we instead, create a new one? A better one, that is secure and everything email needs to be! Now, I am not sure why this commision has not thought of this, or maybe you have and just not acted on it, BUT YOU MUST! The way things are going, with you guys, you are going to do more harm than good. I myself am thinking about starting an online business that deals heavely with email. And frankly, you guys scare me. I got an email from a very respected online marketer, one of my contacts, and he urged me to comment on all of this, for the simple reason - we must protect ourselves as ligitimit online email marketers. And I believe him. I know you guys are trying to help, and spam does suck, but do you understand what is going to happen to ligitimit businesses that use email? So, my sujestion here is that someone over there should take a look at what THE PEOPLE are doing about all of this. You asked if there was any new technologies that came about or are comming about since Jan 1, well YES there is. www.revemail.com is all you need to look at! To whom ever is reading this, please, just type that address into a browser, and see for yourself! Then, maybe, talk about it with someone. Why? Two reasons. 1 - email as we know it is unrepairable, except that! 2 - you can either keep trying to do what you are doing, or you can join THE PEOPLE, and make it that much stronger. You see, this email system as we know it has many many problems, but it is also very good, if used in the right way. The problem is, is that alot of people abuse it. So, maybe a brand new system is needed! And it is already here! A system with NO issues. A system corrects ALL of the holes we have found email to create. See for yourself! Either, convert with it, or keep wasting you time on a system that can't be fixed, and hurting ligitimit businesses. That is all !!
