I like to read all of the email that comes to me and am put off by spam as
the next person, but your letter prompts me to ask
"Do spammers do any more damage than what you've subjected us to?
"Are there things worse than spam?"
"Are there somethings that should not be sent to a list?"
ETC., ETC., ETC!
If ANYONE got value out of the post below, PLEASE let me know and I
will apologize for my tone.
