If you send email to me out of the blue, please do it because of something
you know about *me*, other than I have an email address.

For example, the number of people who pitch me
$random_commercial_linux_software to pimp for them simply because I write a
column for Linux Magazine is astounding.  It's very clear they haven't even
read about the topics I cover.  Losers.
