RFC Published Covering Responsible E-mail Advertising

Slashdot pointed out RFC 3098, How to Advertise Responsibly Using E-Mail and Newsgroups, subtitled "or - how NOT to $$$$$ MAKE ENEMIES FAST! $$$$$". This is the kind of document that is going to fall on many deaf ears. Obviously, the worst offenders will look at this only for the ironic humor of it in relation to their business.

However, one immediate use that this RFC could be put to is the education of clueless management people who confuse mailing lists and newsgroups with broadcast media. It is in the hope that wide distribution of the RFC encourages its use that we publish a link to it here.
