Dear Clayton Brown

Dear Clayton Brown,

next time you launch a website, or platform, or planet, don't harass people with your spam. You require action from the users reading your email - which besides being *just wrong*, I think is very sick. Plain and simple.

You offer opt-out, instead of opt-in, which I think is not at all respectable. It shows you incapable of doing the right thing. Needless to say, I've opted out to prevent any future communication with you. You can leave a comment though, as I'm sure you are reading this (Quote) "Your blog Some FUD of my own caught our attention." Right, I'm sure it did. NOT. I doubt you'll ever hit this blog again.

You offer people to claim what you are harvesting from the web, like it isn't already theirs. If they do, how many of them realize their home address is public, and choose to have it that way, you think? I guess you did not find it worthwhile warning your users for this little side-effect. In fact, it isn't even mentioned anywhere in your spam.

Thanks for playing your part in giving Web 2.0 a boost to Web 666.
