What is this exchange doing on b-greek? "Spamming for Jesus" is scarcely
legitimate proclamation, uses the unsuspecting recipient's computer space,
will only enrage most (if not all) all recipients, and at best makes the
spammer feel good.

And it is scarcely what Paul is talking about in Phil 1:18, unless you
imply that spamming is proclamation of Christ in pretense.

This discussion belongs in private, not on b-greek.
