Abuse of Powers?

Would it be an abuse of my powers of Spam Monkey to send email blast to the several million people on my company's mailing list that took advantange of all the flexibility that mass-mailings have?

I was thinking something along the lines of...[screen goes all wavy, dissolves to closeup of hand holding a crumpled, grease-spotted piece of paper which reads...]

The voices in my head have been telling me to get on a bus and head to [STATE]. I don't know if the cops would let me back into [CITY], but if I can get one or two towns over - well, nobody checks a hitchhiker's ID, do they? [FIRST_NAME] [FIRST_NAME] [FIRST_NAME] why do I have that name stuck in my head? WHY? Is this someone I know? I think it's the name of one of the voices, but it's not one of the nice ones. I'm pretty sure it's the one that told me to legally change my name to John Wayne [LAST_NAME]. The last time I was at the library, I Googled [ADDRESS_1]. You're doing okay, aren't you? Nice looking little place you've got. Is your couch comfortable? I hope so, for your sake.

[FADE TO BLACK]

This is EXACTLY what they had in mind when they invented mail merge, I'm sure.

I really think you should do it. I would love to be able to send something like that to some of the parents of my students, but I don't think the legal fallout would be worth it.

Having had a contract with your company, I think the only way to improve this scenario would be to send the email from the address of one or more of the top executives.

Oh, and this edit:

The voices in my head have been telling me to get on a bus and head to [STATE]. I've got all the account information to pay for my ticket.


Incidentally -- can we get together next week sometime? I think I still have your cell number.

I'm finally taking my writing seriously again.

The absolute panic that would instill appeals to my inner bitch. My outer one, too. *grin*
