    Please read.

    Sorry about this off topic post. But anyone who has every posted to a
    news group knows to well that they open themselves up to a flood of spam.

    Since the recent National "Do-Not-Call" registry to stop telephone
    solicitation, many telemarketers have found SPAM as another method of
    solicitations to harass the public. In fact spam is less costly than
    mass mailings, telephone banks of minimum wage employees and can be
    implemented very easily from practically anywhere.

    This problem will only worsen over time!

    Why has our Congress ignored the spam issue? Could this be due to
    political pressures from merchandiser's industry, from PAC committees,
    trade associations, and possibly political funding from these groups.

    I propose that ALL SPAM email you recieve is forwarded to your Senator
    and Congressman.

    Attached are two links to email addresses of our Senators and Congressman.

    Please pass the message on!

    Off topic eh? And unsolicited? And mass mailed?

    spam:
    n.
    Unsolicited e-mail, often of a commercial nature, sent indiscriminately to
    multiple mailing lists, individuals, or newsgroups; junk e-mail.

    So I guess your message counts then.
    Indeed. Especially with the likes of you around.
    Good idea. Spammers deserve everything that comes to them.
    Thats a good starting point, I'll think I'll forward this one to your ISP as
    well.
    Why? To increase the problem of SPAM?

    Well, that's a real positive and encouraging thing to say. Not to
    mention mature. The collective intelligence of this forum just went
    down a few points with your post there Alan. So what that he's off
    topic, I've seen quite a few posts here that meandered for days off
    topic. Got nothing nice and intelligent to say? How about saying
    nothing at all. And do spare yourself the waste of energy by slinging
    a bombastic stinging reply, I won't be reading it. Have a nice day
    Alan.
