Does the SPAM decide who will be the next IEEE President? Enjoy the IEEE Spam-elections. Bogus Techniques in IEEE Elections. Shame IEEE. Shame IEEE Officers. Shame Vincenzo Piuri
Does the SPAM decide who will be the next IEEE President?  Our mailboxes are currently full of a new disgusting IEEE political SPAM.
Everyday, many SPAM campaigns from IEEE Candidates like Vincenzo Piuri and his fake and bogus techniques for the Chair of IEEE. (Chair of IEEE implies a lot of money from fake and bogus IEEE activities, like royalties from fake /  bogus conferences, kickbacks from IEEE Standards etc)
Why don't IEEE allow this kind of behaviours? Of course, we do not forget the hundreds of Computer-generated papers accepted in IEEE Data base.
This is the IEEE Elections SPAM sent by some Vincenzo Piuri, IEEE Fellow (...Spamllow).  Shame IEEE. Shame Vincenzo Piuri. This was the typical IEEE Spam
that we use to receive in multiple copies during the last two months:
 Dear Colleague,

I'd like to remind you of the election below ( http://www.ieee.org/elections ) which will close October 1, 2013, 17:00 UTC.

If you already voted for me, thank you!
If you have not voted yet, I'd like to ask to consider voting for me.

I'd also appreciate if you could help in spreading the voice and soliciting support from your colleagues, friends and graduate students (forwarding them my msg below).

Thank you!

ciao
Vin (Vincenzo Piuri, the best IEEE President)

P.S. Sorry for the double sending, just want to ensure first mail did not get lost in the summer pile :)

Continuing the fruitful and long-standing experience and service to our community in the last 30 years (started as a student volunteer and more recently as IEEE Director) I am truly committed to dedicate my efforts to:
