STOP Microsoft emails which solicit for vices: prostitution, illicit drugs, and unregulated gamblin

Why is it even necessary that I, an old lady, have to spend my last minutes, days, months, years left in my life pleading with the authorities to do their job? This is not fit work for a woman. I wish some man would sort this out. A man, is there a man to take on this unpleasant task?

Letter I wrote today asking for the assistance

of the Unites States Attorney General in this matter.


Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III

Dear United States Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III,

I am writing to you, the United States Attorney General, because last year I wrote several times regarding this matter to the offending party, Bill Gates, Co-Founder of Microsoft, with copies to the regulatory authority in his jurisdiction, Bob Ferguson, Attorney General for the State of Washington; and I have received no response from either. Neither responded because what Microsoft is doing is illegal, and the State of Washington enjoys revenue from Microsoft and therefore does not intend to do anything about Microsoft’s email solicitations for the vices of prostitution, drugs, and gambling. I am asking the United States government to assert its authority and act to prevent the crimes of solicitation to these vices by Microsoft working within the State of Washington to solicit the entire country via the internet.

I am a woman, an elderly woman, and I do not have, and have not expressed any interest in the vices of prostitution, drug, and gambling for which the emails that are being emailed to me on a daily basis via Microsoft Outlook Edge solicit. I do not want to receive these emails which solicit for vices, no one should be receiving them.

No one is above the law, and neither is Microsoft. Prostitution is illegal almost everywhere, marijuana is illegal in my state, and unregulated gambling is probably similarly illegal, so

Why is the State of Washington not prosecuting?

Microsoft must stop sending these vice emails to me. Microsoft’s solicitation emails promote a vile and illegal culture of prostitution, drugs, and gambling. This is not the world in which I want to spend my last years, nor would I wish it forced on anyone else, it’s disgusting. Children are probably receiving these Microsoft purveyed emails soliciting for vices. Microsoft should not be allowed to purvey the vices of prostitute, drugs, and gambling via the internet.

Thank you for your attention in these matters, because how we live our lives does matter.

* This summary of H.R.1865 — 115th Congress (2017-2018) does not mention the words “online” or “internet”. I suppose we are to “trust” that is what is intended by “interactive computer service”. Significant portions read like government-speak to me.

Bill Title: Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017

Passed U.S. House amended (02/27/2018), passed U.S. Senate (03-22-2018).


“(Sec. 2) This bill expresses the sense of Congress that section 230 of the Communications Act of 1934 was not intended to provide legal protection to websites that unlawfully promote and facilitate prostitution and websites that facilitate traffickers in advertising the sale of unlawful sex acts with sex trafficking victims. Section 230 limits the legal liability of interactive computer service providers or users for content they publish that was created by others.

(Sec. 3) The bill amends the federal criminal code to add a new section that imposes penalties—a fine, a prison term of up to 10 years, or both—on a person who, using a facility or means of interstate or foreign commerce, owns, manages, or operates an interactive computer service (or attempts or conspires to do so) to promote or facilitate the prostitution of another person.” (Emphasis added. There was no internet in 1934, it has taken this long to correct the problem?—AMT.)

“Additionally, it establishes enhanced penalties—a fine, a prison term of up to 25 years, or both—for a person who commits the offense in one of the following aggravating circumstances: (1) promotes or facilitates the prostitution of five or more persons, or (2) acts with reckless disregard that such conduct contributes to sex trafficking.

A person injured by an aggravated offense may recover damages and attorneys' fees in a federal civil action.

A court must order mandatory restitution, in addition to other criminal or civil penalties, for an aggravated offense in which a person acts with reckless disregard that such conduct contributes to sex trafficking.”

(Emphasis added. Why “five or more”? Injury to one is cause for action—AMT.)

“A defendant may assert, as an affirmative defense, that the promotion or facilitation of prostitution is legal in the jurisdiction where it was targeted.” (Why must they continue to protect those brothels of misery and abuse in a couple of counties in Nevada? If prostitution is illegal by federal statute, how does Nevada get away with it?—AMT.)

“(Sec. 4) The bill amends the Communications Act of 1934 to declare that section 230 does not limit: (1) a federal civil claim for conduct that constitutes sex trafficking, (2) a federal criminal charge for conduct that constitutes sex trafficking, or (3) a state criminal charge for conduct that promotes or facilitates prostitution in violation of this bill.

The amendments apply regardless of whether alleged conduct occurs before, on, or after this bill's enactment.”

“(Sec. 5) The bill amends the federal criminal code to define a phrase related to the prohibition on sex trafficking. Currently, it a crime to knowingly benefit from participation in a venture that engages in sex trafficking. This bill defines "participation in a venture" to mean knowingly assisting, supporting, or facilitating a sex trafficking violation.” (This looks like loopholes to me—AMT.)

“(Sec. 6) A state may file a federal civil action to enforce federal sex trafficking violations.

“(Sec. 7) This section states that this bill does not limit federal or state civil actions or criminal prosecutions that are not preempted by section 230 of the Communications Act of 1934.”

“(Sec. 8) The Government Accountability Office must report to Congress on information related to damages and mandatory restitution for aggravated offenses under this bill.”
