Re: Nonsense, absolute nonsense... [Fwd: HipCrime and Spam]
I must agree that having a website invites unsolicited e-mail, if
only to comment that people have seen the site. I send unsolicited
e-mail to website owners as part of my marketing plan.

That's what makes it smell fishy. When I send unsolicited e-mail I
give up the whole deal: phone number and all. If someone complains,
I make great effort to never contact that person again. Either you
want people to know who you are or you don't.

As I said having a website invites comments. It's like being a
public figure. In effect you are publishing your e-mail address.

Just like all the seedy low life multi-level-marketing jerks! No
need to use a remailer for that.
Just 2 cents worth.
