In the past two months, I have received perhaps 6 marginally Scout-related
"ads" on this ISP; at least two of those were hiccups (two copies, same
time/date stamps). I'm as opposed to spam as the next person, but if
someone had "harvested" the e-ddresses, I'd surely be getting more than 3
As comparison, on my other ISP, I received 8 such ads yesterday, and 6
the day before. MOST of the ads are coming because I have free webspace
from a site that shares the webmasters' e-ddresses with their
advertisers. That's the quid pro qua and fair enough.
