And this is what the internet has become, gone are the days of open connected system, but instead tolls to be paid to trolls as idiots believe their services are legit.
I always thought things would fall apart in censorship (which sure happens), lawyers, and idiotic patents, but I never thought of arbitrary tolls from no name, fly by night companies like this “lashback.com”.
What really amazes me, is that they actually want to demand a $20 ransom for me being able to send email, and I foolishly gave them (and verified) my email address, so without a doubt I’ll see my SPAM volume increase drastically. So the joke is if you tried to move away from google, you are unable to do so as these NSA friendly companies will no doubt do their best to keep you stuck.
Obviously I got into the wrong business, as people are scared of the big bad internet, and there is money to be made by ‘allowing’ open protocols to function.
