News: U.S. Presidential Hopeful Spammers
Fears that the next U.S. presidential election is going to be a spamfest has helped launch a Political Spam Hall of Shame. If you receive a political spam, particularly for a national campaign where the winner gets to go live in Washington DC, (and particularly if you don’t actually live in the U.S. or are a U.S. citizen) send it along.
Here’s the blurb: “The gist of my concern is that political spam should be no more acceptable than any other kind of spam, and it looks like 2004 is an election where political spam may, unfortunately, realize its full potential to annoy and aggravate, no different than V1AGARA spam or spam promoting products alleged to enlarge certain body parts.
“At first, we’re just going to collect political spam as it happens, post it here, and document responses or non-responses of various and sundry campaigns to being labeled spammers.”
