    As most of y'all know, mailing over holiday weekends can be dangerous due to increased vulnerability with the antis. Who all is not mailing this weekend and for how long? I'm probably shutting down Sat-Mon misself.

    Hmm, I haven't really taken this thought into account when mailing over holidays. Usually for the bigger holidays, xmas, easter, news years etc ill scale back or turn off completely due to really bad conversions.

    Working at an ESP did you see a big jump in flaming during holidays?

    I will be mailing around the clock everyday but anticipate making approximately $20 the entire weekend combined

    no clue what the op is talking about in regards to antis, they're either in your list or not, it's not like you get a break cuz today isn't their birthday

    A lot of my ESP clients were promoters and retail so they actually increased their mailing during holidays. We didn't allow any sort of affiliate mailing so I can't really say if it was affected at all.

    Not true at all. Spamhaus likes to go hunting during the holidays since the overall volume is lower. You will stand out a lot more if you mail during them. That's really the only anti I care about and to me it's not worth the risk vs. the lower revenue I'll make anyway.

    What do you mean "not mailing"? The servers / IPs have been paid for, they better run 24/7!
