Spamhaus, CAUCE reject premium spam plan

Richard Cox, chief information officer of anti spam organization Spamhaus, said that an email charge will destroy the spirit of the Internet. "The Internet has become what it is because of freedom of communication. Open discussion is what gives it value. There should be no cost for particular services, and e-mail should be free and accessible to all," said Cox.
