Subject: FBI PROJECT? CDC SELLOUTS!!!
From:  Brendon

The CDC HELPING the government!!!!????  In all my years of reading and
enjoying your zine I never once thought that you would follow in the steps of
every other coprate hack on the net.  You have truely lost what made this the
best and most exclusive e-zine in the history of computers.  For years I never
sent you anything or tried to join your organization because I felt I was not
worthy of such a thing, but now I would be ashamed to call myself a member of
the once great CDC.

[to which G. Ratte' responds:]

What, you need to get smacked in the face with an obvious punchline?
Read between the lines, kid.

   _______________________________/new text files\_____________________________

     makes you human.

379:"redbox.c" by Javaman.  Jacking and shooting for eternal life in quarter
     tones.  Read the last line, Javaman knows what's up.

380:"You Are Loved" by Percival Keyton.  Give yourself fully to DemonSeed
     Elite for your grand reward.  In the afterlife.  Next week.

381:"Pr0n Addiction" by Chris.  It's very tragic.  Oh yes.

From: Aiko

my life is so fucked up,i get depressed all the time since i'm sick and
tired of everything. Nobody really understands what the heck i'm going
through my life but cDc sites really encourages me to move on somehow. I know
it my sounds real awkward and weird but it's true. People ane the whole
society are full of craps and they are all fucked up.

[to which G. Ratte' responds:]

Yes, people are full of craps.  They just can't get enough craps playing!
I suggest you get a set of dice, practice daily on the corner, and you
too can clean up playing craps!  Seriously; thanks, keep ya head up.
