Become an eCaptain! "As an eCaptain, you'll create your personal ePrecinct: a list of online friends, family members, neighbors..." can I be a general or a dictator?... And can I be cruel and despotic (Just a little bit)? Please?

They learned from the worst. And at least they aren't commiting mail fraud and plagiarism.

this is just awful. what kind of horrible person would willingly surrender unwitting "friends, family members, neighbors" to the propaganda machine of a political party?

wait, nevermind. the dnc is committed to protecting the privacy of your eInternetOnlinePrecinct.com.

i'm convinced.

kjh - "what kind of horrible person would willingly surrender unwitting "friends, family members, neighbors..."? - An advertising exec ?

kjh - marketing people.

i worked in a marketing department for 12 months as their resident "web guru" ... i had 50 pieces of spam forwarded onto me by my co-workers saying "FYI: this looks really interesting. do you understand it?"

these people seriously believe that people read spam, and that everyone wants a "send this to a friend" function - after all, they do it - everyone else must, too!


bill hicks was right - "if you're in marketing or advertising, please kill yourself now."

Hillary Clinton had eCaptains for her Senate campaign in 2000. I signed a friend up to be one. He laughed and laughed... Oh, wait: that part was ME.
