Vipmailer.fi: An ESP trying to have their cake and eat it

Vipmailer, a bulk email service provided by “Vipmark T:mi” (according to the dom reg) (www, biz reg) has an internal consistency problem.

Vipmailer’s Terms of Use (click on the Union Jack to get a legible version) says This service is not allowed to be used for junk mailing, often also called spam. They even have a definition of spam, which sadly does not coincide too well with Spamhaus’ definition. The best part is, of course, that they offer email address lists for sale… and messages from them contain a tell-a-friend facility, which the Nordic Consumer Ombudsmen flat out forbid because I can’t give permission on your behalf, and your permission is required.
