So why does this torment me?
Hidden down at the bottom of the e-mail, in type I can only read because I can adjust the font size, is the following message: "Due to State Tobacco legislation, Thompson Cigar cannot ship to:
MAINE, RRHODE ISLAND, NEVADA, OREGON, INDIANA, IDAHO, and DELAWARE."
You know, recieving an offer like this, an offer I would jump at, and then noticing that I'm ineligible, is actually worse than run-of-the-mill spam. With those, I can at least look at the advertising, scratch my head, and utter a bemused, chuckling "Why?" over some of the things people will pay for - and, more to the point, that someone thinks I will pay for. This... well, this just makes me want to pay a visit to my state legislators. With a spoon. A dull spoon.
