This kind of fake-legal anti-spam blustering is
annoying enough to make me want to use my Fair Use
Powers to put a mailto to you on a bunch of web pages.
But, on second, thought, that would be silly and a
waste of time.
But on third thought, what do we have home pages and
Blosxom for, anyway?
Using stupid copyright threats to get your way against
spammers is killing flies with a blowtorch inside
your own house.
And, IDCIYTIALON*, email addressess are not
copyrightable anyway. Read the decisions in
Newton v. Diamond, et. al. and Ticketmaster Corp.,
et al. v. Tickets.Com, Inc., and please stop this
Good Lord, the .sig was silly enough, but before

What possessed you to write that bullshit?
