It's spam, no matter how good you think the cause may be. Spam alienates
people. It does *not* sway them to your point of view. Being spammy is
a great way to *discourage* people from whatever you want to encourage
them to do. I recommend you stop.
You have already convinced many on this list, I am certain, that visiting
your site will be a complete waste of time, because spammy behavior is a
very strong indicator of scammy ideas.
