I only want two kinds of email: those from people I know, and those from people who have taken the time to find out what I’m interested in and composed a note meant to appeal to that (I love those emails; indeed, that’s why my email address is public)

Chris Anderson, Chefredakteur von Wired hat genug: Er hat eine Liste von 320 Mail-Adressen veröffentlicht, die ihn mit PR-Spam beschicken (via Bokardo).

I get more than 300 emails a day and my problem isn’t spam, it’s PR people. Lazy flacks send press releases to the Editor in Chief of Wired because they can’t be bothered to find out who on my staff, if anyone, might actually be interested in what they’re pitching.
