Re: spam back!!

Donna Harraway makes a point somewhere about exploiting the new discursive
structures of capital for radical purposes. Not only does she suggests it is
a puritanist conciet of radical politics to morally abstain from the
maleficient tactics employed by capitalists to ply their unholy trade, but
that it is akin to strategic suicide. Wouldn't the most appropriate response
to this covert spam attack be a reciprocal, anti-capital, guerilla strike?
How about an impenetrable, prolix account of how capital is naturalised by
the info supertollway?
