US Army spamming through MySpace

Subject: RE: RE: Meeting fun people, making FRIENDS & Networking.
Body: Josh,

I did not mean to offend you or SPAM you. I am definitely trying to spread the word about the Army and meet some new people at the same time. I have only been out here about one year now and everyone I talk with ask if I am on MySpace, hell I did not even know what MySpace was at the time. So I figured what the heck set up a profile and try to meet people in my area, most of them are on here anyway. I know the Army is not for everyone, so I don't push it on people, but everyone knows someone who may be able to benifit from some or all of the opportunities the Army has to offer.

Again I did not mean to offend you in any way

this sort of solicitation does not interest me. Further, it strikes a bad chord with me. It definitely qualifies as SPAM. I can see the reasoning behind it, but it doesn't change the delivery method.

Unfortunately, I can't offer a better option to you. Good luck.
