23) What isn't Mail-Art

Seems like a lot of contributors want to show us what IS mail-art. Nothing wrong with that. I am currious to what we consider NOT mail-art? A nice example can be the project where mail-artists are called to send in works that is goijng to be sold for a good cause. A mail-art project where one can buy the catalogue, a mail-art project that askes an entrance fee. That is where the borders come closer to what we call mail-art or not. It has to do with the global intension I guess as well.

It is not a mall art, even with a stamp, the post office would refuse it.

Commercial projects are not my idea of mail art, I embrace the idea of free and open communication; they are advertising, self promotion for profit, or what ever you want to call it - Parasites that bleed the soul of creativity and cause distrust and discord, haha! Everything else is fine by me including community exhibitions and charity events in real life or online.

I found the Automatic Drawing mailart call and still wonder what the mail art aspect is? Any ideas?
