Sad and disappointed
I've unsubscribed from the MyAtari
mailing list, and figured I'd at least say why.
Before I do, here's my background. When I was 7 I had my first taste of
Atari. The 2600 ruled my life at the time. Then the 400, 800,
countless 800XL's/1200XL's, and finally the ST's. My dream in life was to
work for atari in sunnyvale, but that was never realized. I ran bbses on
ataris for years. I'm very very into my atari world. One thing I have ALWAYS
been happy about in the atari world is the non-political nature of the
atari community. I'm an american. I'm a patriot. I may not agree with all of
my country's politics, but I certainly support them, I see stuff on the
news everyday. I walk through throngs of people that nearly beat me down "in
the name of peace" when I go to the corner store (I live in
northern california). I really didn't want to see this in the one publication
I actually subscribe to, and really enjoy reading.
from this list because of the "atari for peace" bit. I like the content
generally, but I did not realize this newsletter was going to go
A very sad, disappointed,
Thank you for your recent e-mail. I
am sorry to hear that you have decided to unsubscribe
from the MyAtari mailing list.
I will admit that
I had a few personal reservations about publishing the article in question
in the light of the current political/military
situation. However, upon discussing the matter further with Shiuming, our
joint decision was to
publish the article as the message doesn't show any pro or anti
anything political, it simply
says "No war" - as simple as that.
Finally, I would like to draw to your attention
that "the views of
the contributors are not necessarily those of the publisher and all content is
published without warranty", as stated in our Terms and Conditions.
I am sorry that you have decided to end your
subscription to MyAtari but completely understand and respect your reasons for
doing so. I hope that this will not put you off reading future issues of the magazine.
I'm sorry to hear that. I personally detest politics
and neither am I of any
religious persuasion, but at the end of the day I support the message
of peace, nothing more, nothing less.
