Is guilt and shame ruining your life? Got an envelope, a stamp and a pen?

As NZ's longest-running online commentator, I'm looking for
extra syndication opportunities for this daily publication -- or I'm happy
to write casual or regular material specifically to order for print or
Net-based publications. If you're

Regular readers will know that I have little time for spammers -- but it seems
that, in the wake of the US terrorist attacks, some of them have stooped
to an all-time low.
Instances where spammers have been attempting to use the tragedy to their own
ends have already appeared and I expect we'll only see more of this kind
of unbelievably bad-taste activity from those who spam.
This Wired News story
reports on how porn spammers have picked up on the opportunity to cash in
on the suffering to drive traffic to their own sites.
The Register also published
where a spammer has sent out an unsolicited bulk email comparing the anti-spam
community to terrorists.
Who would have thought that those low-lifes who pollute our mailboxes and
newsgroups with their garbage could have stooped even lower than they already
Why The Towers Fell
There has been an immense amount of discussion on the Net surrounding
the collapse of the World Trade Center's twin towers.
Why was it that they survived the massive impact of the wide-bodied jets
that slammed into them at around 700 Km/H -- yet collapsed like a house
of cards less than an hour later?
story from the BBC gives some excellent insight into the ultimate cause
of the collapse.
This is the kind of area where the Net really excels -- delivering the details
that everyone wants to know but broadcast media often ignore.
A Shameless Plug
Just a reminder that my news site
7amNews.com is all geared up
to bring immediate minute-by-minute reports of any retaliatory attacks that
the USA might launch against the terrorists or countries harbouring them.
If recent events are any indication, the mainstream news sites will likely
be totally overloaded if/when the USA launches such action -- but 7amNews.com
will be providing readily accessible rolling-reports.
