I'm thinking to add one-line advocacy items to the bottom of my e-mails, advocating various causes that I believe in. The idea is to be a cyber "bumper sticker." Below are some items that I thought were interesting and may use.
The ASCII Ribbon Campaign. Stop HTML e-mail and proprietary attachments. http://www.asciiribbon.org/
Too brief? Here's why! http://emailcharter.org/
Why is this e-mail five sentences or less? http://five.sentenc.es/
I welcome VRSE e-mail. http://vsre.info/
As of May 8, 2009, I've changed my OpenPGP signing key in response to concerns regarding the [future security of SHA-1]. My old key will expire 1 Jan 2011; please use the new one for future electronic correspondence. : http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/ST/hash/statement.html
The Free Software Foundation has several taglines parodying Microsoft's advertisements placed in the footer of e-mails sent from their Live Mail service.
