Forum for Responsible and Ethical E-mail
The mission of the Forum for Responsible and Ethical E-mail (FREE) is to stop the practice of sending unsolicited boilerplate broadcast messages through e-mail. FREE recognizes that because of the cost-shifting aspects of unsolicited broadcast e-mail, the recipients and the providers who unwittingly assist in the delivery of such messages bear the majority of the cost. Therefore, it is our belief that such practice is unethical and must be replaced by a system that requires recipients to agree beforehand to receive such messages.
