Email Bankruptcy is a term used to identify or explain a decision to close an e-mail account due to an overwhelming receipt of garbage messages, compared to legitimate messages, usually attributed to author Lawrence Lessig in 2004 but can also be attributed to Dr. Sherry Turkle in 2002.
An insurmountable volume or backlog of legitimate messages (e.g. maybe on return from an extended vacation), may also lead to bankruptcy.
To declare bankruptcy, a message is usually sent to all senders explaining the problem, that their message has been deleted and if their message still requires a response, to resend their message.
