Before you send me mail...
Unfortunately, due to the volume of unsolicited direct-marketing e-mail messages I've
received, I'm forced to include this special warning page before you
can actually send me e-mail or even view my e-mail address.
To put it simply: If you just want to talk, fine. If you
want to sell me something, go away.
(After you've read this warning and if you're willing to abide by its terms,
go ahead and send e-mail to seligman of
(There used to be a link in the above paragraph. There isn't
anymore. The obfustication code to hide e-mail addresses from spammer
robots became inadequate. Don't worry, spammers; we'll block you anyway.)
Here's the legalese, in case the quick summary above left any doubts in your mind:
Now, it may occur to you that if this web site is being visited by a spam robot, the
above announcements won't work. That's why I include the following link:
- You do not have my permission to send me
or unsolicited announcements via electronic
mail or any other form of communication, including telephone calls,
conventional mail, or personal visits.
- You do not have my permission to add or circulate
any information concerning
myself to any mailing list, marketing database, or other list with the purpose of
sending me unsolicited advertisements or unsolicited announcements.
"Information" includes the use of my name, address,
electronic mail address, the uniform resource location (URL) of this or any other
of my web pages, or any other personal information that may be determined
directly or indirectly from this web site.
- You do not have my permission to use or circulate my name,
electronic mail address, or any other personal information
(as defined in the preceeding sentence) to any organization, in any form (including
written, electronic, and verbal) for advertising or marketing purposes.
If you follow through the links via the above button and randomly scan for e-mail addresses,
you will wind up being
invoiced $500 for each e-mail you send to Snark. Of course, you should not use this
service, and the presence of this link on my web site is for humorous purposes only.
