Bunching Their Shorts

The interesting quote of the week comes from a report on The Netly News about the growing use of spam by mainstream marketers.

An unnamed spokesperson from a reputable online magazine that recently sent out unsolicited ads with both the recipient list and the sender's address concealed was quoted as saying, "I'm a little ashamed to admit that I've stopped putting my actual reply-to address on the spams because it's just too damn depressing dealing with all the hate mail, even from my highly targeted list. I think the collective blood pressure of the Internet would go down significantly if people just learned how to use their delete key without simultaneously getting their shorts in a bunch."
