Although most of us view this 'electronic void' we call 'he
Internet as the New Frontier in terms of freedom of speech and a
means to unlock the chains that bind us all by the corporate
controlled mainstream media (CCMM), unbeknownst to most is that
it is not without fault in that regard.

There exists a form of censorship in the worst degree that most
Internet users are ignorant of; this censorship falls under the
guise of SPAM, to which most of us who've spent anytime on the
net are keenly aware of!

Some ISPs e.g., Comcast use RBL's (Real Time Blacklists) and
filter your mail without you even knowing it. This is analogous
to your neighborhood mailman withholding your letters from Aunt
Hildagard because he knows she is last in the pecking-order of
your favorite aunts.

Some might think, "well hell, I don't want mail from anyone on a
RBL list anyway!" Getting on an RBL list is quite easy, and in
many instances is as automated as Comcast's mail censorship.

No one should have the right to dictate to anyone else what mail
they should receive, and in my view the penalties for e-mail
tampering should be as stiff as they are for snail-mail.

Any filtering should be done by one's own software, and should
be completely under their own control. RBL's should be banished,
just as Nazism was, and people need to be "enlightened" about
these dastardly deeds!
