I&#8217;d rather tweak spam filters for three hours than click a few links to unsubscribe from something. Weird, huh?</p> wonko Re: Competition indeed! 2003-10-16T09:28:09+00:00 2003-10-16T09:28:09+00:00 <p>Well, if you DO win, look up the word &#8220;grotty&#8221; and call yourself it from me!<br /> <br /> If not, don&#8217;t.<br /> <br /> And, at least at school, I had to look up words like that a fair bit.</p> felicity Re: Special offers? Pah! 2003-10-16T08:02:49+00:00 2003-10-16T08:02:49+00:00 <p>But you can unsubscribe after the first one. And they won&#8217;t sell you out.</p> Mithrandir Special offers? Pah! 2003-10-15T21:53:33+00:00 2003-10-15T21:53:33+00:00 <p>Ack. Don&#8217;t be like me and enter your email address before reading the not-so-fine print that says &#8220;All entrants will receive special offers from — discounts, rebates, signed editions, and more!&#8221;</p> <p> Just what I need. More email. I&#8217;d better win. </p> wonko Competition indeed! 2003-10-15T21:28:05+00:00 2003-10-15T21:28:05+00:00 <p>Okay, so I threw my name in the hat and I hope I win instead of you. Sorry! ;-)<br /> <br /> I very much enjoy my Shorter Oxford English Dictionary, but two volumes just isn&#8217;t the same as twenty! I mean, what about all those times when you want to look up a word that hasn&#8217;t been used after 1700? Umm&#8230;well, actually, I don&#8217;t need to do that much. But it&#8217;s the principle of the thing. Right?</p> Zeus
