        Sorry, not good enough.

        As the recipient of a an unsolicited solicitation, I don't much
care whether you get one or whether Ned gets one.  I care about the
imposition on my time and effort.

        (Yes, I do find that a very, very carefully done solicitation can
often get past my desire to rip the innards from the sender, but this
involves high-level marketing skills on their part and not the presence or
absence of email/news tools.)
