TWO QUESTIONS FROM THE S.B.
Question 1) Why do so many people and organizations put every random email address they can find on their mailing lists and newsletters, without asking the recipients if they are even the teensiest bit interested in receiving them? Do they really think it's a good thing to annoy the crap out of people they don't know? Or do they honestly believe that their own personal opinions (or press releases) are so mind-bogglingly fascinating that people who live in different states (or even different countries) and have busy, productive lives of their own will be grateful to receive their incessant electronic observations? (Oh, sure, you could say, "Look who's talking!" but we remind you that participation here is voluntary.) And what about the people who do this, but worse, every single email has FW: in the subject line?
Question 2) Is there any way to stop them?
