TradeMe just spammed me 

I have just been spammed by TradeMe, the Ebay-like service bought by Fairfax, the firm. A arrived at an address that is not even on my profile today.
   I realize the chances of detection are not great, since so many people in have accounts. But I am always wary of spam, and have a reasonably active Spamcop account just for folks like this.
   TradeMe, which, as far as I can tell, was with back in the day when it was independent, seems to have fulfilled the fears of some people: that, part of a large, offshore corporation, it has begun to act in a very strange way.
   To the Australian parents of TradeMe: we Kiwis don’t like spam. Spam is not media: there is a difference. We don’t like other Australian companies sending us to circumvent your domestic telecommunications’ laws. So lay off. All this does is damage your , and make us remember just how much better these companies were before we were forced to sell them to you.

Yes I agree with you. These company downgrades their value themselves. Companies should avoid spam techniques.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
