Yes, I read the rest of your message. I did, however, find what Cy had
to say to be revelant. Perhaps Merge might like to know that there's
spam going out with their name on it. I've had friends and associates
send me a head's up before when they've gotten wind of the same thing
happening with their email addresses, and I would appreciate it if
someone told me it was happening with mine. Maybe Merge, like
Dischord (or whichever other label he mentioned), might like to put a
little warning on their site, too.
Whatever the case, my post was small, polite, and (apparently) overall
insignificant. It could have easily been ignored, or responded to with
a simple "duly noted." I know what spam is, and I don't open shit from
people I don't know. I understand. You overreacted, Ross. My post was
a simple PSA to anyone who might have gotten the same thing. I was
only going to send an alert to Merge, but thought it might be
beneficial to others to post it here. There are plenty of people out
there reading this who play in non-local bands who might get a little
excited, shall we say, to have a renowned indie label knocking on
their door. Don't worry, I won't do it again.

There have been plenty of times when people on here have freely given
good advice, and it's always the first place I go when I want to know
more about audio technology. As far as the "last time" is concerned,
it was probably whoever asked if the MC5 show was any good, but I
can't be certain.
The bottom line is that you've made your point, and I hope I have made
