Spammed by Schools Matter
Well I emailed the author of this piece again:
http://www.schoolsmatter.info/2010/04/broad-alumni-making-it-big-in-corporate.html#comment-form

And my email was rejected as spam.

Also the comments several of us have left have never been approved and published.

How disappointing. This guy is making a claim that is "preposterous" (I'm quoting a close friend here who also emailed this guy). There is no plan to convert closed schools in Kansas City to corporate charters. The only place this is claimed is on the Schools Matter blog. I have spent much of this past week since I read this researching this and have hit one "no way!" wall after another. So it's not true.

And I really liked that blog.

Just wanted the folks here to know. I have definitely lost respect for this blog. I am even wondering if that poignant post by a "Teacher in Florida" is really by a teacher in Florida.

Damn.

The link says "2008" rather than "2009," but she still received that honor.


Presumably she wrote that letter.

6. Geek Point - That is not spam, though some consider reject notices a form of net abuse of the net
