Dear Senator Alston.
Since you seem to be under the impression that you can control the internet, here’s a sample of today’s spam. Once you’ve passed your anti-spam laws, I’ll be forwarding all I receive straight to your office so that you can best deal with transgressors.

Election day… Bah! After the quality of the electoral campaigning over the last few weeks, I don’t think any of the politicians are worthy of running a school fete, let alone a country.
MLP http://www.vic.greens.org.au/: The state and national Greens party http://www.greens.org.au/: The state and national Greens party http://www.democrats.org.au/: Australian Democrats http://www.australianbicyclelobby.com/: not only one of the longest domain names I’ve seen, but a coalition of cycle groups raising political issues.
I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.
Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried php, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on emacs org-mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is org-mode and hugo.
