If you indulge in spamming, your job has been made much easier by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India today. You have close to a million email IDs to choose from. In the process of revealing all responses to the body with regard to Net Neutrality, TRAI have made public all the email addresses of all the petitioners. Here is the press release. The Press release also contains the recommendations by Service Providers and Service Provider Associations in full, but those individuals who had petitioned for a â€˜free Internetâ€™ could now be subject to incessant spamming. Their email addresses are listed according to the date they sent their email on. Close to a million individuals had signed up and pushed emails to the regulatory body after TRAI had asked for opinions on the issue of Network Neutrality with the deadline set for April 24. TRAI had earlier said that they would be putting all the information in the public domain. In what could be taken up as a serious breach of the citizensâ€™ privacy, this was clearly not what those who had petitioned against the splitting up of the internet had in mind.
