SPAM



#2

Anyone else receive unsolicited commercial email with the subject "Fwd: Hewlett Packard HP 42S RPN Scientific Calculator"? It was sent by a member of this community, who I will not name. But let me point out two things:

  1. The email addresses of all the targets of this mailing are included in the headers of the message you sent. Some of us (but not including me) might not want that information shared without their consent.
  2. Another name for SPAM is Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE). A mailing is SPAM if the recipients didn't ask you for it. The size of the SPAM is not relevant.

Please take my name off the list for any future commercial mailings. I also suggest you think about it before you do this again.

Regards,
Howard
