Ayodhya Verdict & SMS Ban

Some relieving news that came, whether or not you were interested in the outcome, was about the forced ban by GoI on bulk SMS/MMS push. To most this would be a great relief – the no. of SMS (Spam) in their inbox reduced to 0 from whatever level (I personally get to see about 30-45 SMS every morning that I wake up) – and then for some this would be bad news – the businesses that depend on this, the people who utilize application SMS service (read Free SMS or SMS communication through websites/applications) and in general as intimation through SMS for things like flight ticket booking confirmation, transactional SMS, alerts…list goes on.

Strange that some are genuinely happy about it and some are genuinely sad about it.
