Earthlink has been offering this service for years, AOL has a version
of this, and its about to be implemented for several other large email
providers. IMHO its a good idea and its far more logical than weeding
through tons of junk and deleting them from unknown senders. I doubt
you're going to convince anyone to give up filtering out spam just so
you don't have to visit a website one time. If someone wants to get
through to you or vice-versa its a very small hoop to jump through
providing you really do want to get through to them.
