Firstly, the Pope doesn't absolve for money. Stop being so deluded
Secondly, yes I accept that it can be intrusive and annoying. But it's the fact that people get really ANGRY about somebody e.g. pidging them a copy of the gospel. I don't get angry about unsolicited mail from the Spanish society or the dancers, so why that? When it's invasive I am totally on the side of the people on the receiving end. It just astounds me that it can provoke such a reaction even when it's just friendly.
And thirdly, you seem to have forgotten when my dissertation is due in.
