This system will fail: i explain:
1. Figure one send 10 messages asking a couch, for two week. This
is reasonable and is likely that will be good personalized messages
2. One of the people reply imemdiately saying "ok, but please
confirm me within 15 minutes that i am leaving" and since is in hurry
forget to click on "this is not spam" . The other people cannot reply
