Et tu, Mercury News?

I am the product

A decade ago, I subscribed to the paper edition of the San Jose Mercury News. I foolishly gave them my email address. I wisely made it a tagged address. Today, I received spam from them for 24 Hour Fitness.

I've been sold to spammers by the San Jose Mercury News. Years after I last did business with them.

See my earlier post "You are the product".
