Get Permission

Unwanted messages are annoying. Contact and communication has to be acceptable. We are free to consume information that we want. Advertising that we do not consent to is imposing without good reason.

It is proper netiquette to get permission before messaging. No spam.

Permission is acceptance. It is unclear to some what type of communication is acceptable. Advertisement must be welcomed for acceptance. Asking permission is the best way to gain it.

For the most part, permission to advertise is granted by using free web apps. A website is an HTML application. Mobile apps are similar. Providing an email address enables advertising as well.

Spam is an unsolicited message. A solicitation is a request. An unsolicited message is received without request.

Unapproved messages interfere with approved messages. They can be delivered to the same address. We use multiple emails and aliases to organize and protect our data. For example, personal interest newsletters are not appropriate for delivery to a professional email address.
