5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

A mass marketing firm has sent out an email that compares anti-spammers to terrorists in a tirade that has infuriated Register readers.

The email from StealthLaunch/PopLaunch starts off by giving contact details for organisations involved in support services following Tuesday's Terrorist attack in America, before launching into one.

The message said: During this attack on American Freedom "anti-spammers" express their condolences to Bin Laden!

Anti-spammers are terrorists at heart and attack websites and email accounts of companies wishing to bring their products and services to the general public via email, an enviromentally sound, REMARKABLE medium!

They launch Denial of Service attacks against websites (including ours) on a daily basis because they are ANTI-AMERICAN. All in the name of some ANTI-AMERICAN "moral" cause they beleive everyone should have as well.

Sound familiar? All groups that DEMAND that everyone do or not do what they believe is the correct "moral" action almost ALWAYS rely on terrorist violence. Here is a post from an Anti-spammer that expresses his condolences to Bin Laden, a terrorist group known for killing 1,000's of innocent people. Message Group Link

American marketers Are under Attack! For apparently using enviromentally sound bulk email to deliver products, services and public service messages. Do your part to help Freedom and the American way by simply asking the marketer to be removed from a list. Not by harassing his vendors, dial-up providers or website companies. Remember we don't wish to send mail to someone who does not want it! It's simply ludicrous to think otherwise. When you make yourself known to be an "anti-bulkemailer", you align yourself with Hackers, Terrorists and Un-American groups.

The newsgroup posting doesn't support the author's argument, which if it were published in a newsgroup would be considered as a Troll.

The message is in poor taste and highly unlikely to get the sender's message across. What were they thinking? ®
