That said, I have just recieved and unsolicited E-mail from a temporary E-mail duely named, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is the full e-mail minus the banner.
Save the Norm comic strip from Eviction this Christmas
Cartoonist Michael Jantze termintated his contract with king features syndicate in September and comic strip fans everywhere are donating to keep theNorm.com alive and get Michael Jantze cartooning again. Due to overwhelming support, Michael has agreed to continue the Norm if we can reach the goal of 4,000 paid members to his site by January 1st. Fans are more than half way there, but still have a ways to go. Only you can save the Norm from disappearing forever.
Look around Michael's site. Enjoy his unique perspective on life and skilled cartooning. Become a supporter of the Norm by donating today. Download his catalog and purchase collections of his comic strip. Keep the Norm alive.
I'm sending you this note strictly as a fan of the Norm. I don't get a dime out of this, just the pleasure of knowing one of my favorite comic strips will continue on. If you don't want to donate, that's fine. Visit the Norm's site anyways. Look around and enjoy some free comic reading by a talented cartoonist.
Hope you have a good holidays,

So... I suppose my main objections are 1.) How did Adam get my E-mail address? and 2.) Why does he think I give a damn.
If Adam is a person high up in Keenspace (I do note that my post count is dreadfully low so I don't pretend to know what the heck goes on here), then I SEVERLY object to him using the keenspace mail list to do do a mass mailing to grub up money.
All this said, The Norm should go and die. I object the implication given in these E-mails that by inaction i am killing a web comic. In truth it is HIS action killing his comic. If he REALLY wanted to continue he'd find a way. So clearly this is a money issue and well once it's about money it stops being art, and when it stops being art then there is no pity.
RIP The Norm.com and I'll see you in hell.
edit reason: Anger makes me dumb, but I might as well not be too dumb.
P.S. I assume at some point I will be smacked down by Kisai or another Moderator and be told Keenspace does not give out it's E-mails. I do now doubt that Keen gave out my E-mail. I won't edit my post though cause it'd be like lying. If we can't stand by our wrong statements and have the strength to admit we were wrong then what honor can one have?
