    Spam?

    You obviously have no clue as to what constitutes spam.

    Yes, and no sales pitches or advertizing anywhere, unlike Mark Roberts
    or Tony Spadaro, both of whom labeled it spam.

    Both also add their own website to their posts ad bylines. Perhaps
    that is spam, but not the nowords.org website, or the posting of it
    for the enjoyment of others.

    The TRUE deffinition of spam is unsolicited email. The term has
    spilled over onto the usenet and been hyjacked to describe advertizing
    of websites, or solicitory ads cross-posted to as few as 2 up to
    hundreds of websites for personal gain.

    Interesting you should call it that. Spam is email. Not anything else.

    I noticed on your website the link to 'buy a print', but I guess you
    are not spamming, are you?

    You are pretty stupid as well as being an arrogant spammer. Killfiled
    and forgotten Goodbye loser.
    I suggest to all that tehy take the logical route and instead of
    killfiling this turd individually - killfile his spam enabler - which calls
    itself uncensored newsfeeds. It is the number one spam enabler on the planet

    Just what part of that website did you not like?
    It does not advertize, there are no words, no offending pictures.

    And I do not own it or have any persona/business interests in it.

    Unlike your website, which you shamelessly promote every time you post
    on this ng. With a buy it now link. How covenient. But it is not spam,
    is it Tony?

    Like I said, you do not know the deffinition of spam, or a great many
    other things, no doubt.

    Seems you cannot even crawl out of your narrow little world enough to
    enjoy some very simple and beautiful pictures.

    Thats a pity.

    As I made clear in a prior post, but Tony calls it spam in his
    ignorance.
    The confusion is on the part of Tony, but thanks for backing up my
    prior claim of his ignorance.

  13. Actually, the term "spam" was used for excessive cross-posting on
    Usenet well before it made it into the lexicon for mass emailings.
    There are even formulas to calculate what was excessive. Do a google
    search on the "Briedbart Index" for more information.

    AFAIK, your post is not spam. Off-topic, perhaps, because the site is
    about images rather than equipment. Self-promoting advertising?
    Can't really tell, since you're posting from a newsfeed account using
    an email account at a cybersquatter domain. Still, you're posting
    from NWInternet in Wenatchee WA, and the nowords.org site is
    registered in Seattle, WA. Coincidence? Perhaps.

    So tell us. Is this your site, or if not, how did you find it?

    Did you take a look at that website? Promoting? Promoting what? In
    what manner? I found no advertizing on it, no words for that matter.
    If noword is promoting something, I don't know what that would be.
    I have nothing personal or business related to promote. I am retired
    and likely to stay that way. The relative closeness of my ISP and
    noword is coincidental and something I did not even think to look
    into. I do not alter the headers of Agent, and I have a static IP
    address. Nuff said?

    If you are really curious about how I found it, ok, a friend of mine
    sent me a link to kokogiak.com/ which has links of mutual interests.
    The link to nowords will be found on that site.

    There is a lot of off topic posting here, so I'm not guilty of any
    heinous crime. And yes, I post thru newsfeeds as my ISP contracted
    thru them to provide usenet service to users in that manner, so I have
    no control over that unless I choose to buy a premium service just to
    post to text only ng's? I don't think I want to do that. I understand
    the nature of newsfeeds, a lousy organization, in my opinion.
    Trouble with newsfeeds is they splat that damn trailer on all my
    posts. I can't help that.

    Its too bad some people can't just take a look at the www.nowords.org
    site for what it is. Rather unique as websites go, because most all
    are all trying to sell you something, it seems. Even Tony Spadaro's
    site sells something, and he accuses me of spamming? I got a good
    laugh out of that one.

    At any rate, I did some reading about the Briedbart index you
    mentioned, and came up with this link on the origin of the term
    'spam'. Seems it goes back to about 1986 and, yes, does refer to
    usenet abuse, not email, so the hyjacking was the other way around.
    At any rate, I am no spammer, I haven't cross posted or done multiple
    posts of this or any website.

    Sure is interesting to see the narrow minds that jump up and yell the
    loudest when someone does post anything web-related here though.
    They are the ones with personal website links on all their posts.
    Too narrow minded to just go take a look.

    There is a world of difference between a website listed in one's
    signature, after the "normal" newsgroup converstion text - and a
    one-liner consisting solely of a URL, without even any expanatory text.

    Bitching at people who complain about posters doing the latter just
    emphasises the small-minded mentality of the original post.

    Plonk.

  16. Yet another expert with no clue about the subject at hand.

    Spam is the name assigned to unsolicited email, from a prankish initiation
    of newcomers to network email by messages citing the chorus of a notorious
    segment of "Monty Python", wherein the Viking chorus provides an
    accompanying chant (SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM.....) to a restaurant
    tableau, in which it is revealed that every offering on the menu includes
    Spam. Look up the episode! It's hilarious!

    The Usenet was in its infancy at the time, and this prank was never extended
    to that venue.

    Ummm... nothing at all mystical about this information, as it's readily
    available.

    Incidentally, neat site concept!

  18. Oh, I can think of several good words to describe it . . . .

    .. . . . . . . but the only 2 I would use in polite company are :-

    pointless tosh

  19. I'm talking about your promoting the site here in this group. Having
    an anonymous poster say "Lookie at this cool website I found!" and
    posting a link to their own stuff is a very common pattern on Usenet.
    Correctly or not, your original post fit that template perfectly.
    So why didn't you just say that, tell us what you found interesting
    about the site, and say you had no connection to it?
    Not terribly surprising, since the administrative contact for the
    nowords.org domain is Kokogiak media.

    Wonder why those that don't like it do what is normal and close it out and
    go on their way.

    Now I must admit that I even enjoy the fruits of all this equipment
    discussion, namely the pictures and the ones on this site are noteworthy,
    especially the space ones.

    I found the site very interesting. bookmarked it and sent a link to some
    friends. God, I hope they do not killfile me or report me.

    I liked it and I guess that makes me an enemy of rpe and the group of people
    with the opinion that they rule the news group.
