Introducing myself

P: n/a
I am new to this group and would like to introduce myself. I am the
President of US AngelInvestors,an angel investor group in Silicon
Valley,and also founder of Bay Area Startup Network a networking group
in the Bay Area.
I invite you to join my network on LinkedIn, which I use much
principally. I am always looking at increasing my contacts, and
welcome new deals. You can connect with me on Linked In
(linkedin<dotcom) where I have about 3000 contacts by sending an
invitation to John Ricci using the following e-mail johnr <atbasn
<dotorg. I am also a member of XING/OpenBC and Viadeo where I can be
invited using the same name and e-mail
Regards
- John

Hi, John.
>I am new to this group
Then please post your Microsoft Access database questions or answers, not
your spam.
by sending an
invitation to John Ricci using the following e-mail johnr <atbasn
<dotorg.
I considered replying to your spam by asking you if I had the address
correct and posting Jo***@DomainName.org, but I'll let it slide this morning
due to your inexperience at spamming. Experienced spammers don't post to
each totally unrelated newsgroup individually using Google Groups because it
takes so much time.

Although I cut you some slack, I can't guarantee that others won't plaster
your E-mail address all over the newsgroups so that you get a taste of your
own medicine.

jo***@basn.org was sufficiently experienced to munge his real address and
post using throwaway freebie addresses at gmail and at google groups so he
would, presumably, not suffer if someone complained and he lost those
accounts for violating their Terms of Service or Acceptable Use Policy.
Perhaps you could cut him some slack for being naive enough to think that
someone complaining would also reconstruct his munged address and complain
to abuse@ that address, as well.

jo***@basn.org knew he was doing something he shouldn't, or he wouldn't have
taken such precautions.

Oh, a complaint to linkedin.com wouldn't be out of order, either. They don't
want the reputation of signing up spammers, I am sure.

I used to cut presumed-innocent spammers some slack by gently admonishing
them here and directing their attention to the FAQ at
http://www.mvps.org/access/netiquette.htm but I caught so much flak from
them and others that I now just follow the USENET rules and complain
directly to their ISP and newsserver.

So jo***@basn.org can just blame the ones who objected so strongly about
gentle admonishment for his not getting gentle admonishment.

if johnr wonders what my interest is in keeping
it to the charter and within USENET rules)
