On 1/05/2009, at 8:59 AM, Huseyin Bozdag sent a message about a  
holiday, May Day.

That's usually good.   We like to help people with their English.  If  
people write about things they know, it is easier for them.

Huseyin's message didn't ask for help.  It sounded as if Huseyin  
wanted to tell us something.  And it seemed from the "To:" address  
that Huseyin didn't send one message to this group, but sent a number  
of messages (all the same) to a number of groups.

Is this wise?

I like reading EngFor messages.  I don't like it when messages aren't  
really asking for help, but are trying to sell me an idea.  Whether I  
agree with Huseyin's ideas or not, EngFor is not where I want to read  
them.

And - even worse - let's say I disagreed with the the ideas of  
someone, not Huseyin but Person PQR.  How easy it would be for me to  
write back and say "What a foolish person PQR is!  What stupid ideas  
PQR has!"

Then PQR would write back and call me names.  It is so easy on the  
Internet to have a "flame war."  This is always a bad thing, I think.

What do other people think?

Re: May 1st - the Real Labor Day

And looked what happened to the Workers Commonwealth. That grand red flag flew over the USSR.

May Day - the Real Labor Day

May 1st, International Workers' Day, commemorates the historic struggle of working people throughout
the world, and is recognized in every country except the United States, Canada, and South Africa. This
despite the fact that the holiday began in the 1880s in the United States, with the fight for an eight-hour
work day. 
  
As IWW songwriter Joe Hill wrote in one of his most powerful songs: 

Workers of the world, awaken!
Rise in all your splendid might
Take the wealth that you are making,
It belongs to you by right.
No one will for bread be crying
We'll have freedom, love and health,
When the grand red flag is flying
In the Workers' Commonwealth.

Re: Spam

Just FYI, I banned Mr. Huseyin to keep him from sending any more spam.

Re: Spam

Here's an update:

Huseyin wrote me a nice letter apologizing and explaining that his  
intention was not to spam the group, he only thought it would be nice  
to provide something relevant to a current event written in English  
for the learners' practice.

That being the case, I have reinstalled him as a member to this group,  
so please welcome him back with me. I'm sure he can contribute to this  
group.

Welcome back, Huseyin.
