Direct mail:           XXXXXX
Spam:                  XXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Spam with Guile/GOOPS: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Clearly, this histogram shows that spam with Guile/GOOPS increases ROI.

Yeah, but the name recognition is outrageous.

Frankly, I'm a little tired of spam-baiting. I've been desperately
tempted to buy one of those spam CDs and send some UNE* just for
fun. $1000 (on the high side) for the chance to send my own Pigdoggety
message to the ENTIRE WORLD? Who DOESN'T want to do that?

Spam: art platform for the 21st century.
