AOL’s Email Misunderstanding (and the Rights of Spammers)

I (and many others) wrote about AOL and Yahoo’s announcement regarding the enhanced emailer whitelist and the use of Goodmail last week, and now it seems like there has been a misunderstanding, and that the enhanced whitelist will remain in effect.  From my perspective, this mitigates the issue to a point, but does not resolve it.

I still have a problem with AOL, if it charges me for a mailbox, and makes me subject to spam, just because a spammer thinks I am worth the fraction of a penny to reach.  I have much less of a problem if Google displays ads on the side, without cluttering my inbox.

The second method, if anything, should be the ONLY way I should be marketed to.
