Comment: blind handshake system (Score 1) 389

How about implementing a system where each party has to authorize each other for emails to be sent. Let's say you wanted to email a message to your friend Bill. You have Bills email and he has yours. To establish a connection between both of you, you have to send out a request to Bill first. Thing is, Bill won't ever see your request (this is to prevent both parties from being spammed by requests). Now Bill knows you and wants to email you also, he also knows you probably already sent a request, so he sends out a request to you. At this point when both requests are sent, a link can be established and both persons are notified of this.

This could be doable by each mail server and seems like good way to eliminate spam.

Whom computers would destroy, they must first drive mad.
