dear Lumpen,

the level of your illumination is probably lower then any "lumpen" i ever 
met. when The Thing Rome and 0100101110101101.ORG called for No Protest No 
Profit, they explicitly stated that all of the e-mails would have been part 
of a net.artwork (here is the text of the call).

as a "competition" of net.protest, No Protest No Profit was aimed to raise 
profit for protesters, exploiting all of the art's paradigms and system 
(such as a Jury, a cultural institution or media art festival and so on) in 
order to buy the inboxes of the city of rome.

if you disagreed so much with these goals or methods, you could have not 
send anything and partecipate only to those protests which are pure and
