Recently I got a press release from "Emily." I'm already suspicious when e-mail comes from a so-called friendly name rather than a full name. A glance at the subject line showed that this was a general mailing and business related. Now I'm doubly suspicious because not only should e-mail come from people with a full name, general mailings should come from an identifiable company.
The product turned out to be completely unrelated to our magazine and the products we review (it was a phone switching exchange for IP communications). The company, rather than managing its press release, just sent a blanket e-mail to anyone who might review anything anywhere, confident that I'd feel that having their... stuff... clogging my in box is a value-added activity. It's the functional equivalent of spammers who simultaneously sending me spam for Viagra and breast enhancements. This is just poor mailing list management, folks.
