And you think it's OK to *STEAL* other people's resources to get "your"
message out, apparently.  The people who run the mailing lists _pay_ for
that equipment and network connectivity, and provide it to others for a
specific use.  You _are_ a thief, and as already stated "a bad liar, and
a delusional dipshit."

Doing what you did is *expressly* against The AUP of your hosting services 
provider, Webfusion, Ltd.  <>

That said, you've _made_ your rules, and now *you8 get to live by them.
Since _you_ believe it is "OK" to inflict your 'important' message on 
those you do not know, and who have _not_ consented to hear it, you 
=cannot= object if the 'world' decides to do the same to _you_ and
your mailbox.

Russian brides, pharmaceutcals, watches, lottery winnings, money sharing, 
and whatever else people decide is 'too important' for _you_ not to be 
informed of.

Annoying people who *run* mail-servers is a _really_ stupid thing to do.

But, then, you're a spammer.  And have just re-proven the validity of
Rule #3, and Kruegers Corrolary thereunto, of the "Rules of Spam".

So, I guess, it's not _all_ that surprising.
