Default MSGTAG Email confirmation program

MSGTAG is a perfectly valid program for letting you know that the recipient of your Email has read it.

There is nothing bad in this, it is common decency to acknowledge the receipt of a letter. People who think they can ignore the receipt of an Email are the ones that are to be despised. It is not an invasion into ones privacy, just a decent action in saying that you have received a letter and to tell the sender you have.

Why on Earth should one object to acknowledging a post ? The negative answer is obnoxious.

I know very well how one can prevent MSGTAG from functioning, but I will not give the details here.

I find it revolting that some people object to having their reading habits made known to the senders of Emails. I will not discuss this aspect, it is too stupid and disgusting for further comment.

Many Malware programs class MSGTAG as a worm or Spyware. What an incredible situation ! The MSGTAG staff are some of the nicest people you can ever wish to encounter, very obliging, extremely helpful and you could not wish to meet a better organisation on the entire net.

Quite frankly anybody who objects to an Email receipt being sent on opening a message is nothing more than highly suspicious and not worthy of any personal credibility or trust.

With ordinary land-line postage, if the matter is important, I always send it by recorded delivery or registered post, the recipient has no say in the matter.
The very idea of trying to hide the receipt of a letter is downright revolting and deceitful and MSGTAG are trying their best to defeat this obnoxious attitude.

The fact they use spammers techniques to do it is irrelevant, MSGTAG are not spammers they are a reputable organisation that simply wish to help users to get an acknowledgment of of their Email. It is the paradox of Poacher turned Game Keeper.

Privacy has nothing to do with it - common courtesy has.
