Good take on the squabble, Eric.

You're right. Shel's right. However, how many of us really expect the professional associations to jump on this? How well have the responded to transparency issues? Not well, in my opinion.

Still, they should.

Robert:

I also think there's a lot of education that can take place, so the people doing the complaining have a better idea of how people are finding their name and e-mail address, how to indicate preferences for information received, and how to share info about the worst offenders.

I'm not holding my breath for IABC or PRSA/CPRS to take a hardline stance on something like this.

I still think a lot of the complainers are overstating the problem, but such is life.
