Policitical Spam lists
w8tvi
Once upon a time I subscribed to a slightly political sounding tech email newsletter that had something to do with the Internet and Washington D.C.

I fell into the trap that is the political spam machine. Once you give your email address to one of them, they sign you up for all of them. The worst part of it is Gmail's filters don't work on them!

They have nothing to do with what I was interested in in the first place.

Come and see this moron running for governor!
This jerk is running for president! Give us your money!
And so on.


So I got one today from demandprogress.org
I have never been to their website and I have no idea what they are about and I don't care.
I followed the unsubscribe link and it had a comment section.

Here is what I wrote after getting home from an 11 hour shift at work and a head ache:


I am VERY tired off all you assholes spamming me with this crap that I never signed up to receive in the first place. You are worse than spammers. THEY go away, and Gmail's spam filters work on them. I keep unsubscribing from the lists that you subscribe me two with out asking me, so I have started marking all of you as spam in gmail. I am hoping to start a campaign to get a bunch of people to start marking your crap as spam so your drivel will end up in the spam folder for everyone on gmail.

I'm tired of your underhanded ways. I hate both the left and the right.
Both parties should be outlawed.

This is the progress I demand.

No love,
Noel

I'm finally getting around to installing the 2M mobile in the car. Now all I need to do is hook up the power cable directly.

I love State Farm.

I tell state farm that they can take the auto payment on the 24th, and they take it on the 14th.

Told them twice what date they could take it.

Way to go state farm!

Thank you state farm for the $50 overdraft on my bank account.

Look like you just lost yourself a customer.

Or is there something else going on here?

Using 3 UV LEDs from radioshack, an A23 12v battery, some wood dowel, a 100 ohm resistor, and some super glue I converted my 2xAAA Mini-Maglite into a UV flashlight.

Its my birthday today, and I'm staying home having dinner with Lacy and watching movies.

Get Smart was good, but Get Smart's Bruce and Lloyd: Out of Control was even better.

If you want to sell something, try answering your phone or text messages. If you sold it, it'd be nice if you said so.

dircproxy
w8tvi
Francois (http://www.francoisharvey.ca/) just finished some major updates to dircproxy, and we are on the way to a release candidate for version 1.2.0.

A new stable version should be out shortly. (we hope.)

For those of you that don't know what dircproxy is, it is an proxy (bouncer) for IRC.

Check out the project at: http://dircproxy.googlecode.com/
