Doubletalking Your Way Around Spam
from the come-on,-'fess-up dept
We already mentioned the NY State lawsuit against MonsterHut, but here’s an article that goes into much more detail about the case, and has an amusing (though, scary) response from MonsterHut’s CEO. Basically, he says that since no one has officially defined what spam is, they couldn’t possibly have spammed anyone. Doubletalk at it’s best. He also tries to spin things by saying that an email address is “public information”, and since he doesn’t know anything else about the person who owns that information, it’s clearly not an invasion of privacy. At the end, though, he says he’s probably going to shut down MonsterHut because of this. One spammer down, many many to go.
