== clarifying memo ==

the spam that stems from karl’s various email addresses is _fake spam_
not _literal spam_.

there is a lot more information on this though! it relates to his
personal psychological experiences!

the point of the [spam] label is to help people filter it out so they
don’t have to slog through a bunch of random stuff. (unfortunately i
came up with the label before realising how self-deprecating and
projecting of disregard it was)

anyway: the spam label is _not intended_ for use by AI bots or
laborious human workers in analyzing and classifying email replies and

in fact it would almost certainly corrupt said algorithms i’m afraid!

the issue is it isn’t replies or conversations. it’s for filtering out
for busy humans. it doesn’t relate to the topic or content of the

normal lists used to have on-topic posts, off-topic posts, and other
posts that were considered spam or trolling where people posted to the
list without connection to the community.

nowadays the space of on-topic, off-topic, and spam/trolling is a much
more complex area!

but i came to this list under the pretension that somehow, despite a
lack of message signatures (e2e message signatures are the primary
filter for something not being spam) it might be the real list with
real cypherpunks on it, as if it was 2003.

so, since my messages are not appropriate nor part of the
conversations in such a list, i label them spam and such to cope with
the frightening fact that i am sending them at all.
