‘Human spammers’ at the market

Posted by Geeky Swedes on November 25th, 2008

The Stranger’s Dan Savage is complaining about those folks who stand at the ends of the Ballard Farmer’s Market and ask if you want to sign a petition for this or that. “I don’t have much patience for spam in its human form,” Savage writes. One of the commenters on The Stranger’s site responds, “Dan, all you have to do is say, ‘Not interested, sorry’ and problem solved. Was that so hard?” Personally speaking, we don’t mind the folks at the market, but the almost nightly door-knocking in our neighborhood leading up to the election was a little much. (Thanks Nina for the link!)
