An interesting example of society meets technology.

Consider what happens if the airplane crashes because it
couldn't get access to an overloaded server that didn't
defend itself well enough.

The suespammers.org mail server is located in California.  So are all my
other mailboxes.  Please do not send unsolicited bulk e-mail or unsolicited
commercial e-mail to my suespammers.org address or any of my other addresses.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
