When is Spam Spam?
You just can't win with "progressives" who sometimes seem to want to fight each other because they can't win very many of the real battles. We have a world to win, and they want to get all lathered up about "junk" mail and "spam?"
Don't get me wrong; I too resent the mounds of unsolicited e-mail that I have to clean out of my e-mailbox every morning before I can attend to the mail I really need to read. And, like other environmentally concerned folks, I loathe having to sort through my postal mailbox every day when I return home from work, only to have to go straight to the recycling bin in the garage to dump all the catalogs, fliers, savings coupon books and other unwanted business solicitations.
But I have a problem with people who, in all their misguided self-righteousness, go to great lengths to accuse E and other nonprofits of either "violating privacy" or "killing trees" simply because we sent them either an e-mail or postal mailing.
