It is about #%*#[email protected]%[email protected]!! time to announce the winners of the prestigious
GOLDEN MALLET AWARD!
This award is not a kook nor a maroon award. It is, rather, to recognize
outstanding lifetime achievement in the spamfighting arts. Whether it be by
cancel, by relentless complaint, by research, by spying behind enemy lines,
this Award is meant to reward those grunts who've put up the longest hours
with the greatest courage in the trenches.
This award, given out every three months to honorees in the Email, Usenet
and Rest-Of-Net categories, also is intended to serve as official
recognition of The Best in the spamfighting effort. It is a true reward for
a job well done, the medal of honor around the necks of those who, with
mallet in hand, fearlessly exclaim:
"BELIEVE ME MY COMRADES, IT WILL TAKE THE HEADS OF MANY
SPAMMERS TO QUENCH THE THIRST OF MY REVENGE!!!"
Or, simply do their humble part in service to make a better Net and better World.
These people have helped save the Internet from its own shortsighted foes,
and we are forever in their debt.

The proprietor of this award echoes the masses in extending his utmost
praise, thanks and congratulations to the winners. You have earned the award
through your work and the overwhelming accalmation vote of your peers. I
extend to you the privelege of using the Golden Mallet artwork itself to plaster
all over whatever websites you see fit, in recognition of your outstanding
And may whatever god you believe in, have mercy on your soul.
