A few days ago, the National Do Not Call Registry was officially opened for, er, anti-business. I don't know about all of you, but I might have a tiny pang of wistfulness for the almost poetic monkey-typing ("Re: she is bored with your small butterfly fknlnjjagvcdontyat u"), the quasi-onanistic inbox love, and occasional moments of ironic ridiculousness ("Irwin, Help us Put an END to SPAM!").

That is, if I ever stop getting it.

right. except that it's not an anti-spam registry, just an anti-telemarketer (phone) one. unless of course you intended "monkey-typing" as a metaphor to draw subtle parallels between the semantics of junk bulk mail, junk faxes, dinner-time-calling telemarketers, and good ole email spam. . . ?

also, the New York state do-not-call list works pretty well, without the backlog. And it gets you on the national list, too.

Yes, I stand corrected. It was wishful thinking. I lump them into the same category. But perhaps the implication is that in the future there will be a National Do Not Email Registry, however improbable that may be.

while not there yet, there are some interesting things happening out there. (copied from my blog, btw)

but sometimes you just have to take things into your own hands.
