Have you heard the one about AOL ruining email for everybody?
From the depths of Slashdot, the form letter produced by the old your spam solution sucks because... form:
In an amazing move, AOL has come up with a substantial amount of fodder for the form letter since it doesn't contain a lot of the reasons covered by the Dear AOL movement (new item candidates: your idea is actually a thinly veiled profit making scheme; violates core internet interoperability principles; falsely correlates legitimacy with wealth; harms recipients; harms senders).
The Internet changes the rules. Now a corporate entity with whom I have no business relationship is able to impede my freedom to communicate with its customers, forcing me into a relationship if I want to do what everybody else everywhere else does for free. That isn't right:
You can't turn your responsibility to your customers into an externality that the rest of the network has to pay for.
