Role of MAAWG[edit]

The role of the MAAWG can be highly disputed. It exists to take money from corporations as a method of excusing abusive behavior. Some of the most troubled internet providers are also large financial sponsors of the MAAWG.

I can reference personal experiences with this or you can simply look at the MAAWG yourself. Will probably be adding a section to outline and source what I mentioned here shortly. Woods01 (talk) 02:21, 16 January 2011 (UTC)


I looked, I smelled, I tasted, and found that MAAWG is an industry organization formed by companies to fight the public nuisance of spam that was poisoning inboxes and crippling Internet infrastructure. It is an example of corporations working together in what is also the public interest to fight rather than excuse abusive behavior. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:49, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

I'll put my 10c worth - I disagree that MAAWG is some nefarious commercial organization. Seems like they're getting some coverage - PC World, BBC, might be others. I'm going to support some editing for this article. Noticed also that the name on the article and the agency name is different (name change?). Obviously, more research is needed.

is it M3AAWG or MAAWG?[edit]

It seems the name of the working group is M3AAWG, but this page is titled MAAWG, omitting the '3'. Is that intentional? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Michielbdejong (talkcontribs) 09:40, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
