Political Spam Still Intriguing

from the stay-away dept

Last week we brought up the issue of political spam and apparently politicians everywhere are quietly debating if it’s a tactic worth using. Of course, there’s a simple answer: no. It’s not worth using, because (1) you’re likely to piss people off and (2) even if it does get you some attention, it will quickly be drowned out by the loads of other political spam messages everyone starts getting. If someone has asked you for email, then that’s fine. If not, it’s a bad idea.
