i recieved this last night, apparently because i had signed the
petition regarding the lyrics.ch server.

isn't it crazy that even the lyrics of songs are so tightly held?

Subject: LyricsHQ.com down, needs help, please read.

After seeing that the International Lyrics Server is still not up and another
great lyrics resource, lyricshq.com has been asked to 'cease and desist', we
decided to help out one more time. This was the second largest lyrics site
and a great place to blow some time.

We grabbed an old tape archive of the people who signed the last petition and
restored it so that we could notify you and ask for help one last time. We
hope that you aren't upset about this email but we saw that Tom needs help
over there and we hoped that everyone could forgive us for this intrusion.

He was asked to bring the site down at the beginning of July and tried to
contact their lawyers in order to reach some sort of agreement to get it
back up. As of yet, he has not received a response. We are hoping that this
petition might give him some ammo to speed things up.

We have setup the new petition at http://www.radiorequests.com/petition/

Please come and sign it. We promise that you will never hear from us again
and our promise still stands that we have not and will not sell your emails
off to some spam company.

If you are a webmaster, please take a second and put up a link to the
petition on your site. It would help greatly.
