I Got This Spam Email Earlier This Evening

Dear Democrats & Independents,

Please join us for a balanced analysis of the political scene in the USA. Check out the following quotations about us:

“(The Young Turks are) changing the face of radio.” - Senate M. L. Harry Reid “(The Young Turks have) helped pioneer the rapidly developing field of online programming.”- Matea Gold, Los Angeles Times
“Maybe (the Democrats) could tune in (to The Young Turks) for some ideas.”
- The Detroit News

“Part Howard Stern, Part Howard Dean...The Young Turks offer a host of innovative programs with a political edge.” - Kathy Newman, Pittsburgh City Paper

“The role and impact of new media on the electoral process grows every year. The Young Turks get it. Their live webcast reaches and engages people where they live and work. It has become a part of the national conversation on the air and over the Internet.” - General Wesley Clark

“The Turks, all under 40 and with an infectious zeal for lampooning the right-wing Establishment, are fun to watch and listen to... More than just entertaining.” - Ron Grover, Business Week

“From little-known talkers to big shots in radio and on the Internet. Love Air America or not, The Young Turks will soon be that network’s headliners.” - Paul Bedard,US News & World Report.

The Young Turks
6363 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 301 - Los Angeles, CA 90048 US

Wrong person to send that to. Because of places I have worked, jobs I have done and degrees I have earned, I do not simply delete and ignore this kind of thing. I did a search and came up with a phone number and made a call. I was told the "Young Turks" are at that number between 2 and 6 am Pacific time. Luckily for me, I am typically up and at 'em before 6 am Pacific time. So some poor bastard will be on the receiving end of a nasty phone call in the morning.

If I replied to every spam I receive with an angry phone call, I wouldn't have any time to get work done.

I earn minimum wage and my net worth is negative, and somehow I get dead-tree mail from Fisher Investments. Whould I call them up and chew out someone?
