Tony Blair Tests The Spamming Waters
from the not-this-again dept
What is it with politicians and spam? While they all proclaim to hate spam and pass useless laws that pretend to ban spam, they still have no problem sending out spam themselves. While it's normally been used by politicians campaigning for office, it appears that politicians in office are becoming fans of spamming their constituents as well. The latest is British Prime Minister Tony Blair who has spammed a bunch of folks in the UK. The Labour Party claims that the emails only went out to those who requested them, but many recipients claim that's not true at all. Next thing, we'll have politicians pushing spyware on us as well.
