Enter The I Love/Hate SpamMail Opinion Poll -Pro Leads 3-1

2000-07-27 12:56:01

    A Poll is being taken to settle the issue whether 
commercial e-mail or SPAM is a good form of advertisement, 
which you would like more of or it's a bad form of 
advertisement which you are against.

The arguments go more or less as follows:

     Commercial E-mail is a very efficient, cost effective means 
of informing people about new goods and services. This translates
into substantial savings to the consumer. That the vast majority 
of internet users don't mind Spam and want to hear about new 
goods and services.  
     That for Years now, more advanced bulk mailing software 
has allowed bulk mailers to shoulder the full cost of Spamming. 
This cost has increased and access has become much more difficult 
due to unfair and illegal practices by the big providers (the 
later day Robber Barons) Who have a vested interest in keeping 
Costs and Profits high for as long as possible, and with the news 
media with whom most have formed alliances, have and continue 
to wage a war of misinformation, deceptions, and out and out lies.  
     That through an unholy alliance with, individuals 
and companies have been targeted by cyber terrorists who have 
attacked their equipment, programming and subjected people to 
threats of violence by posting personal information on these 
legitimate companies employees and individuals home addresses, 
phone numbers, which leads to threats against them, there 
families and children.  
     Lastly, that the Robber Barons (Big Internet Providers) use 
special identification programs in their efforts to stop free 
trade that invades the privacy of all individuals by identifying, 
reading, and then determining whether or not you will get your 
mail or not (ask yourself this question, if AOL or SPRINT or AT&T 
or MicroSoftNetwork, (MSN), sent someone to your house to 
intercept your mail, open it, read it, and then arbitrarily 
decide whether they will put it in your mail box or not. Would 
you put up with that?)  They call it filtering, we know it by 
its more insidious name, CENSORSHIP.  

Why in the world should you be subjected to this, and have to pay 
higher prices !  

Anti SPAM:

     Anti Spam arguments go something like this:
They don't like it.  
     Some genuinely want to be isolated fromthe world, others it 
seems are simply being mislead.   Spammers steal services and 
don't really pay for access, Spammers are evil because the big, 
rich, powerful, largeinternet service providers say so, and it's 
OK to targetthem for all kinds of bad things, legal or not.  
They don't like it. 
     And would rather have themselves and consumers everywhere 
continue to pay high inflated pricesso that the Robber Barons 
may grow even richer and morepowerful.  
     And finally, much like the Nazi's final solution to the 
Jewish problem, they are willing to act as the RobberBaron's 
Gestapo, ready to report for termination any Spammers or Spam 

SIMPLE SOLUTION: Press the delete key, STUPID !
