Recently American Road Cycling
received a mass e-mail from somebody who should know better, especially given
the fact that American Road Cycling has, on many more than one occasion,
requested to be omitted from such mailings.
Although clever photos of a self serving nature may have been submitted which
may have otherwise been of interest to everybody reading the American Road
Cycling web site, as soon as American Road Cycling saw that the
mailing was a "broadcast" which carried with it the American Road Cycling
e-mail address in a "send list" of the type that can be harvested by anybody
else on the list, or anybody else that anybody else on the list happens to
forward the offending e-mail to, or anybody else who is anybody else, or anybody
else who is not even anybody else but merely a robot, and not to mention that
the e-mail was followed in by other spam mail from sources that are probably
using the publishing computer as a spamming zombie (assumed because it is
typical to receive such spamming every time an e-mail comes from, or around, or near the offending
address)...American Road Cycling simply deleted it.
Therefore, American Road Cycling cannot comment on the contents. We never
even saw it.
That's how we do stuff around here. Get used to it.
Actually, no need to get used it...that's how we USED to do it. As of this
moment the American Road Cycling web site has fulfilled its mission and
will cease to function forthwith. Trash talk and wiretapping are one thing,
spamming is quite another matter altogether.
Do you remember where you were when Seinfeld, Saint Elsewhere, Taxi, Cheers,
WKRP, Larry Sanders, etc. went off the air? Do you remember the feeling you had when you
turned the last page of the last great novel you read?
So quit whimpering you sniveling idiots.
All novels end, and all things must pass, but there is always something new just
over the horizon.
When reached for comment SlingShot said merely, "What web site?"
Editor's Note: Eventually, SlingShot relented
and restored the
CHATTER BOX and
MEMBERSHIP forms. He is basically a very a weak willed person. He'll try to
shut this nonsense down again, as soon as he is able. In the meantime, he's all
pumped into expanding
THE RIDE CHOICE pages.
