Since I was one of those that received your spam, I'd like to ask you what makes you think I would even be remotely interested in voting for someone like you?

He only claimed to be contacting likely voters, not voters planning on voting for him.

That is beside the point. Good intentions or not, I don't care for spam.

You missed and the GM is wrong.

Spam is illegal in pretty much any country on the planet. Do not send any mail to me or any alt of mine ever again.

So players that are likely voters are not likely to plan to vote for him?

Sounds like you should contact some unlikely voters and turn them around Trebor :) These folks seem to be all butthurt that you took the time to advertise yourself.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

Spam (in this context) - to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately.


Think he said in a previous post that he chose people who he though might be interested, that does not sound indiscriminate to me. Plus he only sent it once which would also imply it's not being sent indiscriminately.

If you don't want to read a post to your EvEmail box then delete it. It's a system most people have used for years.

Should such a post enrage you, rather than create a thread about it I suggest a more satisfying solution would be to find a good locator agent, track down the offending pilot and liquidate him/her in game.......repeatedly.

Indiscriminate enough to catch several people who have publicly and loudly stated they were not voting for him, based on posts I have seen and names in the mail sent to me.

I replied you with the advice to eat a big pile of cat poo, danm spammer. No votes for you.

Well you don't expect him to get the target audience always right do you?

Plus as it's only 1 EVEmail, it takes but a second to delete it and you don't even need to open it.

I know I certainly can barely contain myself around these forums.

Seeing as everyone and their dog posts about crap on here they like or dislike. Well I happen to DISLIKE political messages of any kind. Whoever believes whatever it is.... to me its SPAM nothing else. Yes it got deleted as soon as it was opened and I realized what it was. Then I posted cuz I know that there are others that share this sentiment. I hated it in Jita... I hated it in the mission hubs... I hated it on the forums. Especially because its political in nature.

Politics to me is like watching grass grow... or watching the special Olympics... no matter who wins theyre still retards!! Yes its a bad joke but thats the way I feel about ALL politics. One of the main reasons I avoid Null. Cant stand the bullshit.

Have you heard anything I've said?

You said it's all circling the drain, the whole universe. Right?

That's right.

Had to end sometime.
