a good way to observe idiots with internet access: accidentally be subscribed to a listserv. then watch as hundreds reply to the listserv asking to be unsubscribed. watch as the same people reply to the list to complain about other people's requests for removal.

these are people with aol, hotmail, and yahoo! email addresses -- i can't believe they actually take the time to unsubscribe. any time i check one of my addresses at those services, there are a few hundred advertisement messages. it makes me wonder whether these people are unsubscribing to every single spam message. i'll bet they buy an x10 cam every time the window pops-under.

oh. it is getting better. automated out of the office messages are starting to reply to every message. brilliant.
