    Subject: Why a Trusted Sender Program benefits all E-Mail Constituencies
    Thought you might be interested in this take on the new TRUSTe 
    anti-spam initiative.
    Ted is, as his site says, "... an advocate for the responsible use of 
    e-mail, Ted Gavin is the primary author of RFC-3098, "How to 
    Advertise Responsibly Using Internet E-Mail and Newsgroups - or, How 
    NOT To 'Make Enemies Fast!", a document produced by the Internet 
    Engineering Task Force and published in April 2001. He is an Officer 
    and Director of the SpamCon Foundation, a California Non-Profit 
    organization dedicated to the preservation of e-mail as a viable 
    communication medium. He is also an Advocate Member of the Trusted 
    Sender Advisory Board."
    Why a Trusted Sender Program benefits all E-Mail Constituencies
    BTW: I was just appointed pro tem Chair of CAUCE.ca - if any of your 
    Canadian readers are interested in getting involved in the 
    legislative fight VS spam, please have 'em head over to 
    http://cauce.ca and get signed up for our discussion list. I expect 
    we will have an easier time of it up here than you folks have had 
    with the DMA leading congress critters by the nose, but perhaps I am 
    being overly optimistic. Anyway - we need grassroots help and support 
    - all are invited to the dance.
    best regards,
