No Spam List In Missouri

from the good-luck dept

The state of Missouri is trying to institute a "no spam list" which would work like current telemarketing "no call lists" except... that it wouldn't. Those who violate the list will be fined $5,000... if they were to be found, which they won't. It's unlikely your average spammer would care enough to check the Missouri list, or really expect to get caught. If anything, your average spammer might see the list as a good source of fresh email addresses.

    However the problem with whitelists is that they must be updated periodically or email stops, and you cannot contribute or use mailing lists, as each message sent to the mailing list would be bounced unless you set up a whitelist entry for them.

    I've been using whitelists here for a while and absolutely dispise needing to use them. My personal email is unprotected (which keeps folks in touch with me), but my various support accounts are whitelisted...
