Does it fit into one of the categories I defined? I wasn't overly clear in the second example of the last category. Seeing someone working for someone that's in a specific area and then reaching out to them about something specific to their area... probably not.
Further examples of yes\no for targeted marketing: Most any equipment vendor, unless it's quite geographically specific to someone, no, not unique enough. New provider, data center, IX, etc. geographically near a given company and they find "you" work at that company... sure, that seems like a perfectly valid use. ----- Mike Hammett Intelligent Computing Solutions http://www.ics-il.com Midwest-IX http://www.midwest-ix.com ----- Original Message ----- From: "Dan Hollis" <goe...@sasami.anime.net> To: "Mike Hammett" <na...@ics-il.net> Cc: email@example.com Sent: Tuesday, June 13, 2017 5:16:57 PM Subject: Re: Vendors spamming NANOG attendees On Tue, 13 Jun 2017, Mike Hammett wrote: > I think it would too subject to wild variance in what someone views as bad. > Actual SPAM (viagra, Nigerian prices, etc.), of course. > Industry-related SPAM, probably. > Targeted marketing (looking for someone at Facebook, seeing someone from > Facebook and tracking them down... or seeing someone at someone in a specific > area or...) ehh, probably not Do you view collecting lists of nanog members and using it for unsolicited marketing purposes as bad or not? -Dan
