§ 100.27 Mass mailing (2 U.S.C. 431(23)).
Mass mailing means a mailing by United States mail or facsimile of more than 500 pieces of mail matter of an identical or substantially similar nature within any 30-day period. A mass mailing does not include electronic mail or Internet communications. For purposes of this section, substantially similar includes communications that include substantially the same template or language, but vary in non-material respects such as communications customized by the recipient's name, occupation, or geographic location.
Someone posted that on Topix regarding a post Mary Tufts (AKA - Gladys Kravitz) made regarding some of the tactics of the pro casino forces. I cannot dispute much of what Mary posted except to say that there appeared to be a certain level of agitation present on both sides. At the TMFH hell I was greeted with some hoots for clapping after a few anti casino remarks. Being in a tent with X number of union types I was a very distinct minority - even greater than the final 67% to 33% drubbing. But back to the post.
GK claims that one of the aspects of the actions of the pro's was a mass mailing. What? I don't recall any such thing. I've asked around yesterday and today and neither does anyone else. This has resulted in a "call out" on Topix by some of the more ardent pro forces and anti GK forces of some proof - and I certainly would like to see some. Based on GK's previous supported of Jessie Powell on her noted lies I suspect there may not be any. If so, why keep it in the blog? Makes no sense. Then again, neither did that fowl attempt at humor.
From my own experience on multiple posting boards it is best to supply the FACTS or to say it was a simple mistake and remove that portion of the post. I have done that several times myself as it is no big deal. But when you leave false information out there and support false information all that does is reaffirm the obvious.
I have, as you can see if you waste time reading my stuff, post considerable information on baseball. With baseball I have discovered, as with virtually everything else, that opinions can change as the facts change. I never really have seen that applied with most of the anti casino group. Some, like MB, are at least will mention that they have, like me, a price on the issue. Too bad it has taken on a take no prisoners aspect for many of the anti casino crowd as all that will do is isolate them from actually being a viable force.
