SPEECH Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of
religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the
freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably
to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
--- Amendment I, The US Constitution There are a few
people on the Internet who complain whenever they received unsolicited
mail. Many of these individuals are the same people who feel that the
World Wide Web, Online Services and the Internet should have never been
commercialized. These "computer hippies" resent the presence of
businesses on the Internet. The vast majority of people appreciate short,
informative messages about useful new products and/or services and do NOT
want any "computer hippies" and immature nerds interfering with their
ability to receive potentially valuable information on the Internet since
that's what the Internet is supposed to be all about! Whether or not you
like receiving E-mail, if you are a true American, then you will fight
for anybody's right to do so. Most Americans and the vast majority of
people on the Internet are opposed to imposed censorship in any form. We
are continually amazed at how quickly people applaud the loss of their
freedoms. Without freedom of speech, WE HAVE LOST EVERYTHING our society
stands for. If you are irritated by unsolicited E-mails, JUST IGNORE
THEM, THIS IS THE COST OF A FREE SOCIETY! PAY YOUR DUES! One thing that
has to be said for E-mail over snail mail, is that no trees had to be
cut down to send E-mail.
