Alarming plans of Israeli political parties re: Internet usage

According to today’s Ma’ariv, the political parties are planning to make heavy use of the Internet. The arsenal of tools to be used will include interactive ads, viral distribution of E-mail messages, and even astrosurfing.

The alarming aspect of the plans is that even spam E-mail will not be ruled out.

I have the policy of boycotting any entity which spams me. However, if all political parties choose to stoop to spamming me, for which party will I vote? šŸ™

I am deaf since birth. I played with big computers which eat punched cards and spew out printouts since age 12. Ever since they became available, I work and play with desktop size computers which eat keyboard keypresses and spew out display pixels. Among other things, I developed software which helped the deaf in Israel use the telephone network, by means of home computers equipped with modems. Several years later, I developed Hebrew localizations for some cellular phones, which helped the deaf in Israel utilize the cellular phone networks. I am interested in entrepreneurship, Science Fiction and making the world more accessible to people with disabilities.
