Some updates on the previous entry re Voter Registration Shredding

Just as disturbing as the months-earlier story about people just throwing out votes cast in the mid-term election by people who didn't use voting machines

The FBI has been notified that hundreds of voter-registration forms have been intentionally discarded or destroyed by a private company hired by the Republican Party to sign people up to vote.
The discovery could pose a problem for those going to the polls on Nov. 2, thinking they're already registered to vote, when officials have no record of that. In fact, the deadline to register to vote in Nevada was last night.

This seems to be the first story in the thread:
[NOTE: The name "America Votes" is disputed, there is another organisation called that which this group, Voters Outreach of America, may have tried to associate itself with.]

A visual history of spam (and virus) email
I have kept every single piece of spam and virus email since mid-1997.
Occasionally, it comes in handy, for example, to add naïve Bayesian spam
filter <http://www.paulgraham.com/spam.html> to my custom-written email
