Because You Are Less Than 13 Years Old

A law called COPPA went into effect in April, 2000. The United States Government doesn't want me to collect "personal information" about "children".

"Personal information" includes:

  1. Your full name (you can use your first or last, but not both)
     
  2. Your email address
     
  3. Your website URL (at least, I consider it "personal information" even though the rules don't)
     
  4. Any other personal information that would let someone identify you.

If you tell me you are less than 13 years old, and if you subscribe to my newsletter, I must delete your subscription. If I don't delete your subscription, the Federal Trade Commission might try to fine me $10,000!

You Told Me You Are Less Than 13 Years Old

Because you told me you are less than 13 years old, I cannot subscribe you to my newsletter.

Did You Answer Wrong?

Other ezines I Offer

All About TestZine, My EzineAll About TestZine, My Ezine: This page tells about my test ezine which I created to let me test my ezine processing system.
NB: This ezine was fully functional, but there isn't really a newsletter. TestZine let me test my system. It also let the curious subscribe, unsubscribe and get a sample issue without really really signing up for anything.

List Management Information

Best Practices of Email, Ezine and List ManagementBest Practices of Email, Ezine and List Management: The organization known as MAPS (Mail Abuse Prevention System) once published a list it called "Basic Mailing List Management Principles for Preventing Abuse". I used this list as the starting point to create my own "Best Practices" which I follow in managing my lists.

List Email HeadersList Email Headers: An explanation of the RFC standard headers which should be used on emails for lists and ezines. Also identifies the supplementary user-defined fields I use on my ezines, as well as RFC standard email addresses ezine publishers should implement.

Gammadyne MailerGammadyne Mailer: I use the Gammadyne Mailer for all my ezines. This page provides more information about that use, including summary information about the data I keep, the functions I've custom programmed and how to access my TestZine if you want to try it out. 

CAN-SPAM Is StupidCAN-SPAM Is Stupid: A personal rant about the U. S. federal law known as known as CAN-SPAM. While it is supposedly designed to help eliminate email spam, I think the law is stupid. The article also provides links to CAN-SPAM resources.


My Use of Gammadyne Mailer

I began using the Gammadyne Mailer to manage and broadcast my ezines in late 2002. It is possible to use it very simply, almost out of the box. But it also features a very complete internal programming language to let you do just about anything you want. And, it keeps all the information on my PC in an Access database, where I know the information is secure and under my control.

It is screaming software. I strongly recommend Gammadyne Mailer.

PS: You can test drive my implementation of the Gammadyne Mailer just to see how it works. I created an ezine named TestZine to let me test my programming. You can test it too. Subscribe and receive a "sample issue". You can even try out some of the tests I perform, like submitting a subscription request twice in a row, or subscribing when I'm already subscribed or unsubscribing when I'm not subscribed, just to see how it handles these "special conditions". Just go to my TestZine page.

The extra text menu links (previously here) are being removed in the site redesign.
Browser and search engine improvements have eliminated the motivation/necessity for them.
