I may be prosecuted with polluting the list, but I thought this was sadly

>Dear Extropians,
>First off I want to start by saying that it is our sole intent to bring about

> The program named Future Fantastic, profiled two of your members, and we
>thought it quite interesting. We applaud people maximizing their potential,
>and think the Earth would be a better place filled with optimistic forward
>looking people.
> However, we find it utterly reprehensible that the human race think that it

>that concerns them. You have been given yourself, but you do not own
>yourself. You are property of the "eternal", and to try and crown yourself
>as the "eternal", would be met with great disfavor to your race. To give
>eternal life to your species, would make death all the more appealing, and it
>may be so. There is a purpose to your existence, but it is not for the
>individual to be given multiple chances at success. There is an order, which
>if defied shall wreak havoc upon your people. If within your time you are
>saddened when you are met with the idea of relinquishing what little you
>hold, you are not to be selected. Humility dictates the progeny, and those
>with self serving, self preserving interests, shall be swept clean for a more
>universal and understanding race.
> Your health and well-being considered, enjoy them while you can, and advise
>all partners within and
>without your governments of the world to be advised that none shall ever
>stand taller than the eternal, other than by means of smoke, mirrors, and
>mental pollution. Man-kind?????????????????????????????????????
>think about it!
>alpha and omega.
