MEP Cashman tries to support pro-spam stance

It's always a pleasure to read a quality flame when it's not directed at one of the hapless Reg hacks. In this case, 'Nomen Nescio' would like to express his views on MEP Michael Cashman. Is he angry? Yes he is:

Michael Cashman is a fuckwit if he doesn't know that UCE /is/ spam. "Hey, fuckwit, repeat after me: Content is not the issue!" WTF is this arsehole doing on the European Parliament's Citizens' Freedoms and Rights, Justice and Home Affairs Committee? Wouldn't he be happier on the "Suck up to scammers committee"? How is it good for my freedoms and rights for my email account to be DoS'd by deluges of spam, Cashman?

Anyway, since he seems to think spam is such a wonderful idea I've got a good mind to send him all of mine, because I sure as fuck don't want it. ObClue for Cashman: I can't fucking well opt out /before/ I receive the shit, can I? ObClue for Cashman: all that Reply and typing "unsubscribe" does is confirm that the email account is live, and that, if you don't want to receive the shit, is the last thing you want to do.

Who elected this cunt? Oh, silly me, a bunch of no-brained tossers who had seen him in Eastbenders and thought he was the character he played. If politicians wonder why people riot on the streets and plant bombs as a warning to G8, they only need to look at fuckwits like Cashman, who was elected to represent the people that gave him his job but who is, it seems to me, representing big biznis because they are stuffing his pockets full of pound notes.
