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:
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.

List Management Information
Best 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. ««»»

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.
