OK. What about us who do pay for bandwith?
Anyway... half a second...
If it's MY half of second you don't have the right
to use it.
Also, you're stilling my time to read your message
or at least the subject and use my brain to think who
the hell you are and what you want from me.
That's another half second you're stilling.
I would be a rich man if I could charge all spammers
for this time.

If I am interested in buying a car I will opt-in to some
car related list and will LOOK FORWARD to receiving
their best offers.
