Your lists shouldn't be made up of all of the addresses you can get your
hands on that don't bounce or ask to unsubscribe. Your lists should be
made only of addresses which have said that they want to be on that list
and only that list, and then you have asked that address to confirm that
it wants to be on that list and only that list before you begin to
promote anything, and then you put that address on *that* list and
*only* that list, not any other list. And you don't buy, sell, or trade
lists with anyone else, so that you won't be getting any dirty lists or
causing any dirty lists.
Lists are often bought and sold based on how many addresses they have.
Those are dirty lists. You can't buy a list. Well, you /can/ buy a
list, but it will be a dirty list and it will get you blocklisted, as
