RE: [xml-dev] 5 Good Reasons to Vote Today ... a letter from Michael Moore

If you think the spam is bad, you should see the TV commercials.  Well, no
you shouldn't.  Ugly ugly ugly.   Intolerance is like measles; everyone gets
it but the later in life, the worse the damage.  I turned off the TV and
went to vote for one party, straight down the ballot, one candidate at a
time.  It was pleasurable.

So far the new computer voting systems aren't looking too good over here,
BTW.  It may become an XML topic sooner rather than later so we may want to
get used to the idea of political topics breaking out on this list.

And indeed that may be the idea.  No-one in their right mind would
expect spam to encourage people to vote for them.
