I recently went through (by hand) a national list of clubs pertaining to a section of my site and emailed a request for a link to the webmasters of the sites I found. Basically the email said "If you think this site would be of use to your visitors please add a link" and it was sent to 180 recipients. Well it turns out someone reported the email as spam. It did not have an opt out type thing because it was the only email I plan to send to these folks. So now my ISP sent me a warning saying that they will terminate the account if they get another report. I am tempted to just switch hosts since I feel as though now I am being held hostage but don't really want to go through the trouble. I am also considering never sending another email to anyone with aol.com as there address.
Anyone have experience with this? Any tips to avoid strike two?
