Spam in My In-Box Today

· Miscellany

There’s a topic on the Well with that title (Spam in my in-box today). Got a curious message today:

Subject: USA Today Vote

USA Today is taking a vote on whether the words “Under God” should be removed from the pledge of allegiance.

You can vote by going to the following website:

Thanks and please… keep passing this one along

I like that last bit, the hallmark of any self-respecting meme.
But I wonder, does this guy want everyone to vote for removing “under God” from the pledge or against removing it? Does the fact that he doesn’t specify imply that he thinks everyone feels that same way? Is he really just a spambot from USA Today trying to drive up their traffic for some reason or another?
