Howard Lake | 8 August 2006 | News US online fundraising and campaigning service Kintera has explained to its advocacy clients how it is responding to the introduction by the House of Representatives and Senate of new ’email logic puzzles’, designed to prevent mass emails and spam.The new Congressional defences mean that mass email campaigns by nonprofits using the Write Your Rep web forms are impossible, since each message can only be sent if the sender answers a logic puzzle designed to demonstrate that they are a person and not a mass-emailing software programme.Kintera is adopting a dual approach. First, it points out that any emails not delivered to a political representative are held back and then sent by fax.
