> fact 4) It is legal since you are paying for a service....And exactly what service are you paying for, again? Someone posts this MMF spam. You send them money. And they do -- what? Post it again on

Actually, I was thinking of starting to write to these spammers, asking for my money back for services not rendered. I may claim that I asked to be put on their mailing list. Since they have not done so (would they keep all the requests, you think? Naaaah!) by now, I do no long want to be on their stupid mailing list, and want my $1 back (which I never sent in the first place). If enough people did this, the Get Rich Fast schemes would soon become Get Poor Fast schemes. Sounds just fair to me.

Subject: Re: _Capital... #28

Hi, capnasty:

I've just encountered, for the first time, and downloaded, an issue of _Capital of Nasty Electronic Magazine_ (# 28 (I generally condense Roman numerals, for computer-related convenience)) and find it particularly delightful.

Casual & informal without being sloppy, amiable without being smarmy, sometimes-serious without being self-conscious or pretentious, personal without being overly-egocentric, concise without being cryptic, stimulating (& even sometimes controversial) without being obnoxious.

About the best balance I've seen in a 'Zine (electronic or on-paper) in months; I'm hoping to turn up some back issues, and to obtain future ones of Vol. 2.

Thanks for Posting it to alt.ezines, and Best Wishes for the New Year.

Don Fitch(

C. CompuNotes writes back.

Published by: Patrick Grote (
I thought they dealt with computers in a hacker's way.Instead they are nothing more then a poorly done computer magazine.They take software and review it, and examine sites on the WWW.I lost all respect for them when I read their review on "Bruce Jenner's World Class Decathlon", which they described it as a wonderful tactical challenge. For those that don't know what thisis all about, let me warn you. It is supposed to be a game, andin the end it can't even stand as a tutorial on Jenner's hair.Watch out in future issues for my review on Bruce Jenner's game.
subs: Write to the editor and ask for a subscription.-----

concerning CompuNotes are based on one whole review. That's it. Get with it. A magazine is more than just one review. We've consistently hit one more than one cylinder since we've been up, but you nail us for a slip.

As for subscribing it is:
