Name and shame: The San Jose Mercury News sells me out

Just one for the official record: an email address I only used for the San Jose Mercury news has been sold to the "El Paso Times Online" who seem to be an actual newspaper. The address was used to send me spam about a health seminar.

Sold? Probably not. Both papers are owned by the same company - MediaNews Group.

Heh; I didn't know that. Well, I'm glad that my email isn't being circulated *too* widely, but I'm still not happy that they sent me spam, since that's certainly not why I gave the Mercury News my email all those years ago.
