Abstract Several months ago I sent out an e-mail to a couple of thousand people and nearly lost my broadband access as a result. I maintain a personal Web site of a satirical nature which has attracted a good deal of traffic and consistently positive feedback over the years. Eventually I tried to market a modest product based on the Web site. Far from a major retail launch, this was more akin to custom printing a bunch of t-shirts for friends and family. Because the nature of the site did not invite a high rate of return traffic, I sent an e-mail to the people who had themselves sent e-mail in the past with positive feedback, some two thousand folks in all. The e-mail that I sent described new content added to the site as well as the product that was available.
