robomatic BS: A new wrinkle on Nigerian Scams (92* d) RE: BS: A new wrinkle on Nigerian Scams 28 Jul 21


I have often thought that if there was a way to chsrge money per individual email sent, a lot of this problem would go away. Unfortunately it would involve setting up an actual cash account for every single internet member.

But think of it you'd have an account of say $5.00 max. Every email would cost a tenth of a cent. That would be enough for 5000 emails but for the spammers the costs would rapidly become prohibitive.

Again, the internet is not built that way. It would have to be so fundamental to the overall system that there would not be a way around it. So this IS a non-starter, but a lovely coulda shoulda woulda.

Free is usually a mistake.
