Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone,

This may not be the right forum in which to post this message - if so, Mr. Moderator, please move it to the appropriate place.

In any event, on Tuesday afternoon (evening GMT) I received an e-mail from another member of the BowieStation requesting that I consider one of the two options facing the British people on June 23, 2016. The subject line was explicit in terms of where the sender's sympathies lie. In the body of the e-mail was a link to another site, where the message is clear and the bulk of the comments are filled with vitriol, innuendo, and hatred of immigrants.

The sender had acquired my e-mail address last fall in the course of the sale of a recording, and this was the only purpose for which I shared it. No disclaimer advising me that my e-mail address may be used for some other purpose was ever brought to my attention, and I certainly had no reason to believe that it would be used for the purpose of getting me to support one particular side in the upcoming EU referendum in Britain.

Unless I'm mistaken, BowieStation was established for the sole purpose of facilitating the sharing of the music of one particular artist, and it would seem reasonable to me that when the site endorses a product related to the purpose of the site, site users should expect that any information they share will not be used for a wholly different and unrelated purpose. To do so is, in my opinion, entirely inappropriate.

Thank you.

I totally agree. Sending spam to other users is absolutely not accepted.

Anyone that have received this email, please send me a pm with the details about the mail/sender. Full header of the email would be best to track down the sender if he/she is an unknown user.

Proper action will be taken against the member if it is possible to find out who it is.

So did I, but that, to me, is beside the point.

The person sending out these emails is not a member here on Bowie Station, so technically it is not an issue for BS.

Members that have received the email have received them due to them buying a CD from his website.
A link to his website was posted here on BS, but not by him.

I expect that contact details for other members are not misused.

There are members here with different political views, different religions and from all across the world. Political and religious discussions should not be held here.

For the user database at BS, this will never be used to send out spam. You might receive a personal email from staff if there are some urgent issues. Emails would probably also be sent if Bowie Station goes offline for some reason.

Reprehensive as the sender's views may be, it's nothing to grass him up about -- not here, anyway. His ISP would be the obvious direction to bleat in, but I doubt the ISP will take any notice anyway.

He's obviously an idiot (why send a presumably "persuasive" email to someone who can't even vote?)

Just ignore it, or hit reply and call him a cunt or some PC perjorative, but either way, forget about it.

I'll drink to that! (Of course, an avatar is not a "discussion" of any kind.)

Bit difficult to take the moral high ground when your avatar is a photo of a rapist, paedophile and necrophiliac.
