    Okay, and why does she need to use Verizon's servers to send email from
    her own vanity domain?
    Unless I am missing something and Verizon gets paid for this?

    I believe you are exaggerating, like I usually like to do. My point is
    the the vast.. vast.. clueless majority is a direct threat to Internet
    survivability (ooh, big words). The 100s of thousands of clued users who
    has a vanity domains can definitely find an easy way to send mail,
    without using the provider's servers.

    The cost of allowing these servers to stay "open" is extremely high, and
    we are paying the price every day.

    That's the point, the clueless, vast, vast, majority is happy. They
    don't care. They don't know there are 40 Trojan horses and 400 spyware
    components installed on their quiet green desktop. All they know is that
    their email account works. I know that they are threatening the
    Internet. Clear and simple.
