Yes, We Now Do Bulk E-Mail (Apparently)

Saturday, 4 January 2002

A moment of idle self-googling (alright, it was a blatant attempt at ego-gratification by trying to turn up even more new links to this site), turned up this page of bulk e-mail hosters and providers. Visit the main page and you'll discover that this is not spam (or SPAM as it's consistently misspelt by the site operators, in violation of the Hormel trade-mark).

There's probably little that I can do about this and I'm not sure that I want to. The idea that somewhere in the world someone has just received an offer of mail order Viagra from Gummo Trotsky at Tug Boat Potemkin isn't without a certain appealing absurdity. Of course I may change my mind if I become a target for the anti-spammers: when the humourless set out in hot pursuit of the opportunistic there can be hell to pay. Right now though, I'm more concerned about where the ship's archives have pissed off to for the second time in about as many months.
