    The Internet F-word
    by Judy Cox

    For the last ten months I've been collecting and organizing links for the Free Christian Resource Center.

    Now that the public area is redone and the members area is well under construction, I'm running into one problem: the Internet F-word.

    One of the most popular search terms in the world.

    One of the web's biggest lies in the wrong hands.

    So controversial that I can't put it in the subject line of an email. (Thanks to those self-appointed email guardians who have done such a commendable job of protecting the sanctity of our email inboxes by eliminating the f-word, thus leaving more storage space for viagra ads, adult sites, and REALLY personal growth secrets.)

    And STILL one of the best magnets to draw targeted traffic.

    So what if I have to advertise that my Members Area will have links to over 25,000 Fr^e Christian Resources.

    That my public area has links to over 1,000 Fr^e Christian Resources.

    That my ezine will feature fr^e Christian Resources in every issue.

    It's all part of Life on the New Frontier.Keeping up with the changing rules. Avoidingmisdirected vigilante "justice".

    No, I don't like the stupid email filters that filter out the ezines I subscribed to while apparently laying out the welcome mat for the scammers, spammers, smut merchants, and gamblers.

    I could gripe to my family and friends. Change my domain name to keep my url from triggering somebody's spam filter.

    But, hey, I live in the land of the Fr^e and the home of the Br@ve. Think I'll keep my domain name and post the ezine on the website for those who can't get it by email.

    And if I can't figure out SOME way to let people know my site is Out There, then I'm just not a good enough promoter.

    And if I can piggy-back THAT onto --say,an articlethat (I hope) advances the Cause of Exposing the Spam-Nazis and ISPs for their meddling, ineffective and intrusive (non)solution to The Problem of Spam, so much the better.

    Maybe I could even come up with a title that piques the reader's curiosity while illustrating the woeful inadequacy of "filters".

    After all, I'm fr^e to submit fr^e articles to fr^e content sites and fr^e ezines all over the Internet to advertise my fr^e Christian resources.

    I just can't use the f-word in the subject line.

    Feel Fr^e to pass this article along. It's fr^e to reprint as long as you include the contact information and resource box below.

    (Hey, just think how keyword-rich this article will be when the General Public starts searching for "fr^e". Note to self: add fr^e to meta-tags on website before the Google-bot's next visit ;-)
