Neven makes a very interesting point.
The difference between real world "junk mail"
and virtual world "junk mail" (UCE, spam, take
your pick) is twofold:
1.) In the real world, junk mailers pay a fairly
high price for each piece delivered;
In the virtual world, junk mailers pay a low
price for each piece sent, but the recipient
must pay for bandwidth (internet service) to
receive it (unless the recipient is a denizen
of NetZero, etc.).
2.) The preparation and lead time involved
in a virtual world junk mail assault is almost
nil. Get an idea today, even a bod one,
send it today.
Real world takes a little longer.
Perhaps the solution to UCE is to tack on
another $ 0.25 per message and deliver
that money to the recipient, thereby
reimbursing the time spent ferreting through
the stuff and automatically making UCErs
more selective about who the send their
Whaddya think folks?
