    and beginning of next is (at least trying to) getting myself off all the various email lists.  The Democrats have been sharing lists around like mad and my inbox gets 20-40 emails per day as we get to the end of the month/quarter/year/cycle, whatever is going to bring out the next round of begging for dollars.  Different groups and candidates had different levels of sophistication on this - some, like Elizabeth Warren, had the option to go down to a minimum of one/week maximum and I think hers also had the option to opt out of all fundraising emails, leaving me free to receive the sign petition / take action type of email.  Some merely report that I will be taken off their list but others aren't even so sophisticated and they insist I enter my email address again, just so they have the opportunity to then be tricked into clicking on the "change preferences" button which would keep me enrolled.

    I will still continue to add my tips for Act Blue and DKos as appropriate and I will continue to send money to candidates of my choice, but these long ago got ridiculous.

      Act Blue is among the best.  but I've gotten where I delete a lot of the others without reading them.  I'm down on Emily's List for their endorsing Hanabuasa over Schatz in the Hawaii Senate race.  I can't support primarying a proven progressive just for Hanabuasa's ambition.
