    I have received similar messages in the past, but not recently. That's what I get for posting my email address on the site, I suppose.

    There used to be a law against all this crap. Whatever happened to the FCC protecting and serving the public trust?

    Okay, enough politics. Yeah, I've seen similar stuff - somebody subscribed me to a list without my knowledge or consent, and it was really tough to get unsubbed... had to get my ISP involved.

    Later On,

    Your email address was probably picked up by their freakin' robot from the front page and now they're spamming you. I'm getting these all the time. Son of a bitches.
