NEW SPAM for ΙΕΕΕ Prat-Elections. NEW SPAM for ΙΕΕΕ Prat-Elections. NEW SPAM for ΙΕΕΕ Prat-Elections.

NEW SPAM for ΙΕΕΕ Prat-Elections. NEW SPAM for ΙΕΕΕ Prat-Elections. NEW SPAM for ΙΕΕΕ Prat-Elections. We are NOT IEEE members and we receive SPAM from IEEE for their elections.
Many other people protest on the web for this kind of IEEE Spam.

1st Case of SPAM for IEEE Elections
Dear Sir: 
Please vote for Roger and circulate among your CS acquaintances.Dear Computer Society Member:

I am supporting Roger Fujii's candidacy for CS President.  Roger will make an ideal president.
Please pass the word  to other CS members that you know or work with.

Below is an endorsement of Roger Fujii, a candidate for President-Elect of the 
Computer Society. 

For those computer scientists of engineers, or software engineers, who are not 
members, please consider joining---there is great value in membership.

     Richard Hall Thayer, PhD, CSDP
     Fellow of the IEEE and Golden Core Computer Society member
     Professor Emeritus in Software Engineering
     Sacramento State University, California


I would like to recommend that you vote for Roger Fujii as the next
President-elect of the Computer Society.

I have known Roger since we were engineers together at Vandenberg AFB in
California back in the early missile days.  At that time, he was leading
the verification and validation (V&V) effort on the Air Force Space
Division missile launches.

Roger has recently retired as VP of Network Communications Systems at Northrop-
Grumman, Inc., where he was responsible for three business units with an annual sales
of $1.05 Billion.  He controlled $42 Million in R&D funds, and manages 2300

I have watched him comfortably control meetings even there was major 
divergence of opinions among the attendees.  Despite his huge
responsibility to his company, Roger was able to devote considerable
time to the Computer Society and has meet all of his obligations. He provided support
to many Computer Society activities both national and international.
[See his biography in the August edition of Computer.]

Roger would make an outstanding president for the CS. Please vote for
Roger and pass this recommendation to other members of the Computer
Society that you know or work with.
