    Seriously? You are going to spam us on an education list? What a shmuck.
  •  
    I guess you can consider this as spam followed by name calling on a education list serve for professionals. When you actually click on the link you will notice that they are providing a service to low income families who can't afford Internet at their home.
  •  
    And don't you think that if I recommended a particular internet company to my students that I wouldn't be called-out for endorsing a particular company? I wouldn't regard that as professional at all. In addition, that company is not necessarily a nation-wide provider of cable services. If you are going to post something about how to get low-cost internet, why don't you list it that way instead of calling it "internet essentials" and making it sound like a legitimate educational tool?
