Please take me off your list and DO NOT include Society of Professional Journalists references on your Web site. Thanks. Beth
As I said in my original e-mail, I'll happily put a mark (666) by your name to remind me not to send you any more e-mails...since you don't read 'em anyway, what would be the point, right? But as for what I do with my website I suggest you have a quick glance at the first amendment. Thanks. G.
Dear Gerard: I would appreciate it if you would please remove me from your distribution list. Regarding the First Amendment, I am very familiar with what it states. I do not wish to get into discussion or debate with you about what it states. However it might interest you to know that the First Amendment only applies to government acts of censorship, not to acts by private citizens. Therefore, kindly take any references to SPJ off of your Web site. Thanks again. Beth
Dear Beth: You are "off" my distribution list. Other than to answer you I won't send you any more e-mails, but the e-mail addresses of members of the SPJ are on its website and are therefore common, readily available knowledge to anyone who knows how to use Google. Get Google to remove them and remove them from your website, then get back to me. I consider "professional journalists" tools of a vast, monolithic propaganda apparatus, the Eiffel Tower of propaganda that makes what Joseph Goebbels did in Germany look like Tinker Toys. Wouldn't it have been nice if someone had tried to point that out in 1937 or 1938 or 1939? I'm doing my part to point it out. Your grandchildren will thank me. The First Amendment says among other things that there can't be any laws made against free speech and/or a free press. If you think there's a valid law against using Google, sue me. You'd probably be better off just to ignore me and the greatest work of literary art ever made like everyone else does. Thanks. G.
