I only had one officious reply from a well know high street company (like sogra backwards) who were sending him junk mail - they wanted a certified copy of his death certificate before thy would consider stopping sending to him.


I assume you sent them an invoice for however much a certified certificate would cost + markup for your time and effort and then setup a rule to send an auto-reply stating that the message was being forwarded to something like reportspam@ftc.gov (I just made this up now) and then delete it afterwards.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
