An Example Of
Religious Spam
[name withheld]

Unsolicited junk e-mail (spam) is bad enough. This was sent by a reader (name withheld) as an example of religious junk mail. Most disconcerting is that this message is intended to terrify the reader (the old "fear and trembling" bit) -- rather than to win the reader over to a viewpoint through reason or truthfulness.
