Good point, Jim.  Remember that tag line from the spam that made it through
to the list?  The one along the lines of "if they get enough e-mail thrown
at them, they will become customers?"

I guess they figure that if they can't come up with something unique or
mainstream, if they toss enough e-mail at it, they can get a response.  Sort
of reminds me of bureacracy only with money, politicians, and problems...
