What Are Some Internet Marketers Thinking?

Recently I received an extremely disturbong email from a friend who lives in the Middle East. He has been receiving abusive emails from total strangers all because of his country of birth.

Now most of us are aware of the unrest in that part of the world but this does not give anyone the right to send hate mail to individual citizens. Especially if they are people in the Internet marketing business with a list of subscribers.

This is definitely a case of using information irresponsibly; just because you have an email address does not give anyone the right to abuse this privilege. Before you query this statement just give it some further thought. We see something on the internet that sparks our interest, maybe the person is offering something for free which appeals to our senses. We plug in our email address and behold we have the requested information at our fingertips. How great is that?

This is a privilege make no mistake. Whether you give or receive an email address it is the responsibility of every decent person to treat this information with respect.

It is bad enough that a large section of our society feels they can physically abuse their fellowman but when it comes to verbal abuse over the internet toward an innocent human being, it shows how low some people will stoop.

I am well aware of the many people who will not under any circumstances send their email details to a stranger; maybe they have learnt the hard way. On the other hand if we cannot send our information and still feel a certain amount of safety, there would be absolutely no internet businesses.

Those Internet marketers who run an honest business will acknowledge the responsiblity they have when receiving a new email address. It is totally unacceptable to sell these lists or to give them away. Most subscribe forms say how the owner hates spam and that the address will be safe. Long may these decent Internet Marketer's remain.

We understand that good old fashioned humanity has all but gone down the drain in every day life but with the abuse now being exhibited of subscribers lists who can we believe or trust? Not too many it would appear.

I would say that if you know of anyone who participates in this sort of behaviuor be aware that they can and will just as easily turn on you also. These dregs of society need to be shown that it is unacceptable to ruin someones business by speading nasty, false rumours.

Let us suppport one another in this journey of life and begin to prove that there are still humanitarians left on this earth. Are you one of them?
