A while ago I had the (crazy?) idea that it might be nice to get
advertising/manufacturer news through the TIG. The condition woud be that
the message subject would have to be prefixed with a standard marker --such
as "TIG ADVERTISEMENT".
I would then use my email filter to spool that stuff to another folder. I
could read it or discard it as I pleased. It wouldn't constitute "noise"
because of the magical action of the email filter.
This might also be a source of revenue for the TIG. There would be
absolutely nothing wrong with charging for the posting of such messages.
One problem might be the TIG's "broadcast" model. With a lot of this stuff
being posted the TIG servers woud be quite busy broadcasting all these
messages to all subscribers. What would it take to switch the TIG to a
newsgroup model, where the subscriber's email program only gets subject
information and goes and gets the message content on demand? This would
also allow for nice thread-type listing of ... threads on most email
Another problem would be in defining the fine line between a
manufacturer/supplier posting a message that could be on the edge of a
"chargeable offense" and the real thing.
Just a few thoughts...
