Political Spam August 29, 2008Posted by gordonwatts in politics.
I’m getting some political spam. It is for some bill to stop oil speculation. I don’t think there is very much oil speculation going on — in fact, I think that is a distraction from fixing the real problem (energy efficiency, etc.).
Normally I would just hit the delete button.
But I find this spam more than a little annoying because I think the only way I could have gotten onto their mailing list is due to one of the candidates/congresspeople I’ve donated money to or given my email address two (a total of four). I’m annoyed because that means one of them supports the idea that oil speculation is something that we need to spend time thinking about. So many things to waste time on. 🙂
