All that just because ACLU wants us to support their fight against Bush´s government sponsored religion. ;)
Any idea whether it makes a difference if you subscribe to their HTML or text-only version? *I* get practically no spam even without filters in place, but my 14-year-old sister really thinks I should put a spam filter on the family server. Enough of us subscribe to the ACLU newsletter that it'd be a real pain to have the thing getting rejected.
We have congresspeople, too you know ;).
Comparative studies in German, English, Scottish, Welsh, Northern Ireland, and US Constitutional law is sort of a hobby of mine ;). ACLU cases are hard cases and while they may make bad law, they are certainly very interesting. They are often the cases where it comes to the core of things and I like ACLU´s way of insisting that even in those hard cases the law is not to be bend to suit the majorities´ point of views or interests.
Of course in their quest for advancing freedom they often do choose priciples that are questionable like privacy but are recognized by the courts while they ought to try to achieve the same aims by employing different arguments. But then they work in the real world not academia.

I know your government is an elected representative democracy, anyway. I wouldn't have known what the apropriate term for a representative in your national legislative assembly is without looking it up, though. Or even whether it's a unicameral or bicameral assembly.
while they ought to try to achieve the same aims by employing different arguments.
Hmm... I'd be interested in hearing more, but that should probably happen off this board. But there's always stickymail. (For that matter, I'm sure you can find my primary e-mail address in 3 clicks.)
The big deal for them is the writing style, which tends to be a bit "DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!" if you know what I mean. I've never liked the style, particularly for their market, but that is their style.
The spam problem is costing many businesses a serious buck - not just the added difficulties in email marketing but the missed and delayed communications caused by corporate anti-spam measures.
When someone tells me that they didn't get my email these days, I ask them if they have a "spam" box to look into -- that's almost a reflex by now. You never know what kind of triggers are involved in labeling a message as spam.
Spam filters don't care if it is really spam or not.
Well, how could they, since that is open to interpretation anyway. If even humans are unsure how could a bunch of stupid rules determine that. BTW that´s one good argument against H.L.A. Heart´s assumption that law is nothing but applying rules.
