Are you still subscribed, Eddie Gloucester?

Edward (or Eddie -- whichever you prefer),
Would you PLEASE cease and desist from SPAMMING all these various
discussion lists with your "websites-of-the-hour" messages? Not
everyone in the world is interested in the same things that you're
interested in, 99% of your messages are completely off-topic for the
multiple lists that you send them to, and in any case we're all able
to use Google (or whatever other search engine) just as easily and
effectively as you can, if indeed any particular subject did interest
If surfing the web in the quest for intriguing web sites or news
items is your hobby -- and if passing along your discoveries to
innumerable strangers is really your compulsion -- then might I
suggest that you start your *own* list specifically for that purpose?
YahooGroups (for example) makes it very easy for anyone to
create/manage their own lists, free of charge, and then at least
you'd know that anyone who has joined your list is indeed genuinely
interested in letting you do their web surfing for them.
In the meantime, with all due respect I can only say that your
incessant daily notices of what interests *you* is not only a great
annoyance, is not only unethical and disrespectful to the countless
people that you impose yourself on each and every day, but considered
as SPAM it is also, in fact, ILLEGAL.
Thus, for your sake as well as ours, PLEASE STOP.
