      my oh my,

      I would never have thought I´d ever defend a bulk mail sender, but
      this is just ridiculous. Here are some people who are enthusiastic
      enough to start a fanzine about music they love, with little prospect
      of becomíng millionaires from their enterprise anytime soon, who,
      maybe naively, choose a way of advertising that is not 100% kosher.
      fine. I think it´s cool to tell them to stop or find other ways to
      make people aware of their efforts, but no - out jumps the spanish
      inquisition and declares flame-war.
      kiddies, Sonic Wave is not the enemy - those guys advertising
      casinos, porn, multilevel-marketing and the like are the ones you
      want to go for. and if what Joan said is really true, for those who
      send threats and virusses to anybody; grow up and get a life. you´re
      no better than the spammers - their motive is money, yours is finding
      a ventile for your adolescent agressions. you paranoid brats probably
      also spend hours reading your firewall logs in order to find IPs of
      evil portscanners to strike back on, and feel very martial and heroic
      doing it.

      Oh, I´d like to state that I´m not a personal friend of Joan, have
      never heard of him (or her?), neither of Sonic Wave, before this day.


      oh, some of you will surely want to take revenge on me now (since
      it´s obvous I must be an evil corporate illuminati spammer as well)
      go ahead. my IP is 212.186.131.252.

      stuff like that just makes me sick.
      now let´s talk about music.

      cheers,
      deedee
