has been
typically identified
the world over as unsolicited
marketing messages of typically
commercial products of one form or
another, in email, and of course newsgroups. But announcements about open source projects with their latest release can hardly be called "SPAM" when it's an announcement to people that would most likely be interested in it. Of course people like you who don't know what it is shoot off your posts of poop and denounce a perfectly legitimate post. This is why you and others were properly defined as internet turds, clogging up the newsgroup with your poop, creating even more traffic than the original announcement. Instead of thanking the person that made the announcement we saw mans' inhumanity to man once again, the typical unimaginative poop coming in all upset about messages that offended you without thinking about how it might have been a benefit. You and a lot of people actually think you have a god-given right to have email and newsgroups. By
the way most of the newsgroups in this
thread have plenty of useless chat in
many of the threads having nothing
to do with anything other than
silly banter. Poop away with
more poop!
