    Putting VerticalResponse in its place

    In response to the June 20 Newsmaker with Janine Popick, "Surviving in spam's shadow":

    I read this interview with great interest, and it looks like Popick was saying all the right things regarding opt-in only, strict anti-spam policies.

    However, a Usenet newsgroup has quite a few spam reports about VerticalResponse and their clients.

    And there is one particular spam that was sent by VerticalResponse to advertise its products.
