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 vix.com, 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: ( Info Coming In Slow )
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 more powerful.
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 !

Attention both Pro and Anti Spam Advocates and those of you who
may have sought removal from any number of bulk mailing lists.
If you have received this e-mail it is because it is a conscious
decision on our part to try and include everyone in this important
poll. To not have included those who profess a dislike for this
form of advertisement would have eliminated those individuals
from the process and provide an unfair advantage to one side of
the poll. We sincerely hope that all interested individuals or
entity's understand the necessity of inclusion.
