Personally I found Marc's comments and tone offensive.  Thanks for the heads up.

    Marc - I'm baffled by your charge that I'm "trampling" over anyone by apologizing twice. 
    Spam has to do with advertising. No-one can be fined for accidentally sending a private, non-commercial e-mail. I understand there are people out there who cannot tolerate views different than their own, and to those people it somehow makes sense to punish differences of opinion, as well as blast others with personal abuse rather than talk about the issues calmly. But thankfully the legal system doesn't work that way.

        There's an old saying about "it's easier to get
        forgiveness than permission" and it seemed that's
        exactly what you tried to do..
        An apology is not acceptable while you continue to trample
        over others after the apology. Like that makes everything
        OK and no one should hold you accountable or protest?
        Your message indicated you KNEW you were SPAMMING
        before you hit the send button!
        There can be consequences for SPAMMING. If a lot of people
        fowarded your post and a SPAM complaint to your ISP at:
        you could find yourself the receipient of a hefty bill as many
        service providers have a no spam policy and charge upwards of
        $500 per violation and disconnect of your service as you did agree
        to their service policy prior to getting connected with them.
        Additionally clogging up the internet with lines to the Florida
        government offices would only serve to get the posts sent
        there ignored and further lower internet email credibility to
        the level of trash.
        I do a lot of communications with my State of Colorado Ag
        Department and have had to work quite hard to buuild a
        relationship with them so they will respect my emails regarding
        agriculture as they get so many immediate gratification emails
        like what you are pushing for.
        I think you could consider the officials of Florida ARE GOVERNED
        BY FLORIDA LAW - not mindless emails from a faceless mob from
        out of their state they have NO legal or moral obligation to.
        They are doing their job as dictated by the Florida Law and the
        They ARE recounting  and don't need millions of emails from
        OUT OF STATE PEOPLE to tell them to do what THEY
        ARE ALREADY DOING!!!  Don't you watch the news?
        Why would you tell the dog to sit when it already is? It's
        not even your dog.
        They are the focus of the most intense scrutiny since Watergate
        and Nixon. Not even during the impeachment investigation and
        pursuit  of Clinton has this much firepower been aimed at an
        internal USA situation.
        (If anything I think we should have a nationwide recount.)
