    * HostingTech Magazine spamming?

    Has anyone else received an email from HostingTech Magazine advertising their magazine? I have never even visited their web site before this.

    To be fair, it is a targeted spam message and not another "buy viagra online" thing, so I don't really mind personally. But still I wouldn't expect a magazine to send out spam.

    I believe you they are good, and personally I don't have anything against them sending out targeted bulk email to hosting companies (though I would never send out spam myself, not even targeted spam). I'm just slightly surprised that a company would do that is all.

    Edit: Maybe not all "spam" should be called spam. What I mean is there is good spam and bad spam.

    Example of bad spam:
    Mr. Get Rich Quick buys a million email addresses, and sends ads for viagra to all of them.

    Example of good spam:
    Company Y manually reviews email addresses of hosting companies, and sends them offers for dedicated servers.

    I don't know, just an idea.
