You're A Bootman

 
 
PREVIEW
To participate fully in the activities at Hot Boots, various features will ask for your e-mail address when you list yourself or otherwise post material to the site.  This is so other users can contact you, of course!  If you're like most Hot Boots users, you will want that, since bootmen come to Hot Boots to meet others.

A problem in recent years has been that spammers find these addresses, and of course, no one wants spam.  To thwart spammers, we no longer show e-mail addresses in ads, listings, messages or in the Chat Room, unless you intentionally type it into the ad, listing, message, or chat conversation.  Instead, people who wish to write you will be shown a web page where they can put in their e-mail address and a message to you.  They will not be shown your address.

Then, the Hot Boots mail server will generate an e-mail from them to you.


WILL THIS PREVENT ALL SPAM?

No. Some spammers are persistent enough to write one bootman after another, awkward as that is.  However, we limit use of the system such that they cannot write very many.  Our experience has been that almost no spam arrives through this system.


WILL THIS GUARANTEE THAT NO ONE WRITING
WILL LEARN OF MY ADDRESS?

No.  When you reply to them, of course they will then have your address.

Be aware that you can reply to a writer without intending to.  Setting a "vacation reply", having a spam filter that challenges senders, or letting your mail box get full can generate a reply.  Also, equipment failures on the Internet can cause "bounce" replies.  We want you to be aware of these possibilities.  They should occur very infrequently.


THEN WHY DO THIS?

Because it will greatly reduce the exposure of your e-mail address to spammers and others.  You will likely feel that exposure is non-existent.


WILL THIS MAKE IT HARDER FOR ME TO FILTER FOR SPAM?

No, it will make that easier.  All mail from the system will have the three words "Your Hot Boots" in the "Subject" of the e-mail.  You can tell your spam program to accept that mail.


WILL THE SYSTEM HIDE MY E-MAIL ADDRESS WHEN I AM
SENDING THROUGH IT?

No.  The recipient will get your e-mail address in the message you send and it will say it is from you, not from Hot Boots.  All he needs to do to write you is to reply in the usual way.
