If you don't like spam
AND
If you're a member of ACM
OR
if you're NOT a member of ACM
OR
if you've never heard of ACM

That should include about everyone here.

Executive summary:

Vinton G. Cerf, Senior Executive VP of MCI and a co-creator of the 
TCP/IP protocol suite, is scheduled to be honoured for that creation by 
the ACM ( http://www.acm.org/ ) in June. Dr. Cerf has paid lip service 
to anti-spam efforts whilst his company provides the largest source of 
"bullet-proof" spam hosting on the planet. When confronted, Cerf makes 
lame excuses for this inexcusable corporate behaviour. Members of the 
SPAM-L mailing list are preparing to lodge a formal ethics complaint 
against Cerf with the ACM.


Your participation and ideas are invited.

I, one of the instigators of this idea, expect to see this thing get 
into the mainstream media eventually.
