    Default Corporate greed

    I see in the news that AOL and Yarhoo are going to start charging companies for sending Emails, and it looks like other companies will follow suit, and then the charges will then be applied to the public "us". whist charges of 1/2 pence per Email was mentioned, It only goes to show the corporate greed of some of these companies out there, they make enough profit in my opinoin as it is, but they do not seem to be satisfied with that. I wonder how these charges will be applied to the likes of our site, if it all comes in to play, we are notified as you know when a thread we have subscribed to has been answered,will the site have to pay?? if so a subscription my be neccassary It is not my intention to put the cat amongst the pigions but it is anoying when a company is intent on making as much profit as it can when it see,s an opportunity from a service that we all take for granted,We all pay for the internet conection anyway.....
    Doe,s any one else have any view,s on this subject.

    If these charges were brought in by ISP's (Internet Service Providers), you would only be charged for sending your mails through their mail server, so you wouldn't be charged for receiving mails from Vec-C. These mails are generated by the forum software / database.

    I agree that it would be a crock of sh17, and it's just these companies cashing in 'again'.

    You'll probably find if you pay the extra for your mails you won't see any banners and will be guaranteed no advertising, but if you stay on the free service you 'may' see some banners and will be spammed.

    If you are then on the "advertising" no charge type of site then,I bet they will allow companies to spam and advertise the living daylights out of us ,So then forcing us to have to take up the "paid option". Mind you would a good spam blocker, say something like norton [I dare say ther are many more out there] be able to stop the adverts and the spam???. than then may be a way around having to pay a charge.

    It is unlikely that every provider of email will charge, therefore those in the know will just switch to a free one, pain in the butt changing sometimes but it would have to be done.
