Congress Filtering Emails
from the they-don't-want-to-hear-from-you dept
Congress has been overwhelmed by spam, so now they’re using filtering systems to cut down on the amount of unwanted email. This, of course, sounds good at first – but it does make you wonder if real messages from constituents aren’t getting through. They say the best method they’ve been using is to use a form instead of a straight email address. First of all, spammers are unlikely to fill out a form, but also the form requires a zip code – which eliminates mail from people outside of the politicians district.
