"Re: CAN-SPAM Act Rulemaking, Project No. R411008." The idea of suppression lists seems unworkable for all of the reasons stated by Paul Myers and posted at his website http://www.talkbiz.net/ramblings/weblog.php. My experience with email lists is mostly as a subscriber and I find that much of my email that I DO want is filtered out by ISPs and email providers like Juno.com. Many of the newsletters that I subscribe to carry advertisements from other subscribers and outside vendors. If I choose not to recieive adverstisements from XYZ company directly that should not prohibit ezine publishers from sending me ezines that contain advertisements for XYZ company. Likewise, if an XYZ affiliate sends me an email that conains an ad for XYZ, that should not make XYZ liable for that email that they had no control over.
