Re: mass email distribution software
I think it depends a lot on who uses it. We have an ethical use for some
mass email distribution software.
My friend Kathy Miles writes a weekly column and publishes it on the web
at http://StarrySkies.com and we sometimes get requests to send it via
email. We have tossed around the idea of setting up something to mail the
articles weekly, but I haven't really looked into setting it up mostly
because we aren't making any money with the site.
If anyone has any suggestion as to how we can ethically make money with
the site, please let us know.
