The Deadbeats Hall of Lame
Why Anarchy doesn't pay.
When stupid people get together, they come up with stupid ideas, or their combined ignorance amplifies and intensifies their stupidity. The internet is a wonderful network, but a 'tard and their stupidity are soon imposed onto folks who want nothing to do with it. Here is one such example.

Hello, and welcome to the UMass Anarchist mailing list. We're a couple of clueless college kids who write newsletters because we think that maybe someone out there gives a shit what we've got to say, which is a pretty big assumption and often proves out wrong. In case you're confused, you got put on this list by either you yourself mailing "firstname.lastname@example.org" or by one of your friends (or maybe enemies!) doing so. You can get off the list at anytime by writing the above address with the subject "remove" .. even right now, if you want to. And don't worry about getting tons of mail. We wouldn't even send out tons if we had the time to. The newsletter usually gets sent out about once every three weeks. In case you're not really sure what we're all about or what we write about, the next message is a copy of one of our mailings. So check it out and we hope to hear from you in the future...

So, I follow their removal instructions and instead of being removed, I get this garbage:

Back are stupid and unnecessary comments that take years to figure out, caked in extranious content, shakey credibility, and bad grammar. In case you haven't already guessed, it's me, Jason Stiener and if you're interested, I wrote this newsletter using Notepad...not bad, eh? I surf the web incessantly and write poetry when inspired. After college I dream of getting a real job. Imagine that. It's nearly the end of another semester at the University of Massachusetts ...which could only mean one thing. Yep, it's time again to hear the juniors use the word "burnout". All in all, it appears that this semester didn't suck as much as I had originally anticipated, but I still have tons of tough classes, a shitty minimum wage job, and the freshmen down the hall that keep blasting The Allman Brothers. I actually called Dr. Jack Kevorkian, but he put me on hold. So here you are, at a desolate rest stop on the information autobahn - this is the UMass Anarchist. The only newsletter that strives for truth, longs for attention, and tries hard to keep it real. It's the newsletter that I put out whenever I get my lazy ass in gear. The whole idea is pretty cool... --[ In loving memory of Jason Stiener, lost in a freak accident during a UMass fire-drill. We'll miss you.. 1976 - 1996 ]-- One Clueless College Kid?

Cancellation lead to the above unwanted and pointless stupidity. But I already mentioned that.

Please accept this apology wholeheartedly from the entire staff of our publication. Sincerely, Michael Rusignola
You'll see who was informed(adminstratively) in regards to this garbage. Words like "anarchy" automatically trigger extremely negative reactions from me.
Obviously if they had thought of that in the first place, this never would have happened. Apology was not accepted.
Let's investigate the domain a little bit. This stuff was all over the place.

This is their reply to my negative email that was also direct to alert administration. I should also note that copies were immediately sent to police, FCC and FBI, due to their mention of anarchy. I figured authorities might be interested in a potentially dangerous group.

That sort of says it all right there, don't you think? Some stupid college kids with poor language skills, boasting about misrepresenting themselves. Why call themselves anarchists if they aren't into anarchy? Oh, wonderful, they are lying.
Of course, the first ammendment lets them lie and write this garbage up, but it does not give them the right to include people who did not sign their list, and then IMPOSE their garbage on such people who didn't want it. The part about them sending it to someone who doesn't want it violates first ammendment rights.
I recieved two calls on the way back home from the office on my cellular phone. Obviously they were dialing the office and since that number forwards to my cellular, I get the call there. I was assuming this was a customer, and I was asked to hold, which I said "no", and was placed on hold anyways, which in turn deteriorated into a radio station. This has happened before, so I hung up, knowing when I get a radio station in my cellular phone, the call tends to get hosed.
A few minutes later, a voice calls back asking me not to hang up. When it introduced itself from this little anarchy group, I hung up before it could explain anything.
Moral: Don't screw with me as I'll grind your butt into the ground.
If you are one of the dilweeds who sent me unsolicited email or are someone thinking about it, drop dead.
