    I'm going to tell you a story, pure as God's love, of how one man worked hard and then gave up the fruits of his labor. Why? because he believed that it would contribute to a better world. A dream of dreams, one of a better world - a vision of a better tomorrow

    But I'm sure you've heard this story before. One man's voice cannot change the world. Cannot change America. Well, the story is true. You may fight the good fight, but, the powers that be will still slam their boots down upon your throat

    Last night I donated to the Bernie campaign. I saw a great man in need of support, and I put down my dollars to back his cause. I went to bed with a new feeling of accomplishment, one that I had never experienced before. Today I checked my email - a GMail account - expecting a subscription to the newsletter... and at first I didn't find a single thing. Why?

    The emails were in my Spam folder

    An email from a presidential candidate? One that nearly tied in Iowa, and won in New Hampshire? Being filtered as Spam?

    I wonder if you sent the exact same message from a different account to yourself it would end up in the spam box

    Holy shit! This is big, man. You gotta take this story to the media. The people deserve to know about it.

    Wouldn't surprise me at all. The Clinton Foundation and Google have some ties.

    Peculiar, but probably benign. There should be a specific thread for these weird coincidences, though. Call it a conspiracy theory thread for all I care. But I'll admit that that study on the "media blackout" of Sanders did ruffle my feathers pretty substantially.
