These are often things I don't want to say, or are said when I do not want
to say them.  From brainwashing.  [spam] helps me have ease by helping me
feel better spamming the list.

And if people filter around [spam] instead of around me, they might hear me
when I have something important to say, if I can learn to differentiate
well again.

Regarding UCE, commercial email is not only about selling products.
Hopefully that's clear to a community like this?  Being a paid troll is a
huge thing now.

BTW, the old archives at https://lists.cpunks.org are filled with UCE.

Rust is a newer systems programming language, at a glance to me it looks
like it is trying to be secure.

Or easier but yeah ...

Uhh ...

I have severe problems preserving and accessing information.  That might be
why a lot of [spam] ends up here.  I need a way to store feelings without
losing them, somewhere.
