all of these elements combine to create a highly self-referential loop through process or loop back test that {branches|bounces} off of threads, discursively hyperthreading to multiply, connect, decenter + circulate the subject of "rhzome-subject-of-texts". as such, "rh:zome Subject (# of texts)" functions rhizomatically as rhizomeness is described by Gilles Deleuze + Felix Guattari in A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia as quoted by in's About Us. (1)

this remix of the "PLEASE DO NOT" threads traces back to the ongoing "PLEASE DO NOT SPAM ART" project by trashconnection as sent to RHIZOME_RAW from www AT trashconnection's "PLEASE DO NOT SPAM ART" positions spamware as artware + allows usrs of the "PLEASE DO NOT SPAM ART" system to construct + send spam msgs as an ongoing + open process. the "PLEASE DO NOT SPAM ART" posts handmade spam msgs to addressees selected by the usr of the system + also CC's those msgs to the o-o Mailing List. the o-o Mailing List is described as:

" o-o is an experimental mailing list for net art and it's theory. Also for providing information about electronic art, technology and events."

o-o, which "PLEASE DO NOT SPAM ART"  connects to via [CC'ing/porting/piping] data to, also features a

while i love the horizontal spread of the "rh:zome Subject (# of texts)" project + the ethic of appropriating [+/or] remixing while porting [+/or] piping a conversational data set from 01 src to another, i wonder if the flatness of "rh:zome Subject (# of texts)", in terms of the engagement it presents as options, doesn't close the feedback loop to closely to the surface. "PLEASE DO NOT SPAM ART" remains open to the abyss of spamware as a system that can be utilized artistically. the o-o Mailing List multiples those options while also targeting specific discursive platforms such as the "PLEASE DO NOT" threads function as a playfull insider's games for those [in/on] the platform who are familiar w/trashconnection's "PLEASE DO NOT SPAM ART" project + announcements. will "rh:zome Subject (# of texts)" open this system? will "rh:zome Subject (# of texts)" further, widen, deepen [+/or] flatten the conversation? + while these questions circulate,
  looping through these networks, awaiting remailing, expansion + comment, i also wonder if "rh:zome Subject (# of texts)" offers or mobilizes critique of the systems that are @ play with[in/out] of the project, or if such an intention exists in this mutual recursion... (?)
