Non-profits are scoffing at AOL's invitation to join its Enhanced Whitelist for free.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), which organizied a cabal of "unlikely bedfellows" to protest what they dub an "e-mail tax," say the ranks are swelling. The group's DearAOL.com coalition has swelled from 50 to 500 organizations in one week, and 30,000 e-mail users have signed the group's petition.
"I don't take bribes," the EFF quotes Gilles Frydman, executive director of the Association of Cancer Online Resources, as saying. "The solution is not AOL offering a few of us service for free in exchange for our silence - the solution is preserving equal access to the free and open Internet for everyone."
