A special note for SurvivalBlog readers who live on or near the east coast: A big pro-Second Amendment rally has been scheduled for the afternoon of Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 on the Capitol lawn in Washington, D.C.. Please do your utmost to BE THERE! This needs to be much bigger than the crowd gathered for the so-called Million Mom March, back in 2000. (Which was actually only about 250,000 people, pictured.) Again, please BE THERE!
And a personal note: I have absolutely reached my tolerance point for spam. Not counting the more than 10,000 spams that automatically get blocked by my e-mail spam filter each day, I still get about 40 e-mails offering me “free content” or “paid content” every day. Sometimes they don’t even correctly re-format their spam template. Here is an example:
“Hi there! My name is Jelly, and I write for Facts.net. I’m a fan of [BLOG TITLE] and I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed reading your article on [TITLE]. I’m writing because I’d like to contribute to your site. If you’re interested, I’ll be sure to write an insightful article that I think you and your readers would appreciate. If you run the article, I’ll do my part to promote it to my readers, so you wouldn’t have to do any extra legwork.”
My apologies to any SurvivalBlog readers who have had trouble getting e-mail through to me. With the volume of spam that I receive, I need to keep our mail server’s spam filter ratcheted up fairly high. – JWR
