One reader's complaint about the remailer problem on BurmaNet:
...I have just seen a hole shot in
my budget for January due to this individual's
thoughtlessness. I live in Europe, and not only do I pay for
each phone call to my local system, I also have to pay for
each incoming message....this jerk has cost me money I would
rather not have thrown away!!!!
Dear BurmaNet subscribers,
It's time to purge the mailing list of addresses that are no longer
functioning. If you subscribe to a mailing list and then close your
account, every message sent by the list to you will be bounced back.
Because of this, I regularly receive a hundred or so bounce
messages per day. If you put an autoresponder on your account, the
problem affects everyone on the list because it sets up an
endless loop between BurmaNet's automatic mailer and your automatic
The recent incident on BurmaNet resulted in over a thousand junk
messages going out to each subscriber and more than 20,000 bounce
messages in my box. To fix these problems, I'm going to purge any
address that shows no sign of life. What I need each of you all to do
is send a note to me at: strider@xxxxxxxxxxx
All you need to do is say let me know that your mailing address is
still active. If you have any suggestions, complaints or requests,
please take this chance to let me know. I'll send out at least one
reminder of this but if there is no response from your address, you
will be unsubscribed from the BurmaNet mailing list.
Sorry for the trouble and I hope your New Year is peaceful.
