Recently, someone "spammed" the Consultants list.
This happened not to be really objectionable - it was a pitch for a Linux management company - but it is a matter of principle: you shouldn't be sending unsolicited email even if it is possibly of interest to the recipient.
There's not a lot I can do about it. You can leave your email address out of your listing, but then potential clients can't reach you. I can implement a system where they have to request your address, but that's annoying and could slow down an emergency contact.
I suggest that those who were spammed do all let the spammer know what we think about it.
If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.
