you will probably find that you need to broadcast an email message
sooner or later, but please do it openly and in a straightforward
manner. don't use bogus return addresses to keep people from finding
a way to remove themselves frmo your email address list.
always consider your recipient -- give them a means to opt out,
always, always. don't be a spamming banshee that gathers enemies
and ticks people off left & right. not good business.
i've got a service where email@example.com can sign up firstname.lastname@example.org
-- but i send only ONE email to user2 to allow them to confirm or opt
out, and THAT'S IT, until they confirm and join fully.
best thing to do is make your service or product one that's appealing;
make a website that highlights the benefits or advantages, and allow
folks to sign up or request more info about it.
things are more like they used to be than they are now.
