Here we go again: discouraging PR #SPAM by posting them pre-embargo: Here's one about smokeless tobacco #AAASMtg
Just received this in my email. As I have said before (The Tree of Life: How to stop press release spam? Post embargoed press releases) I am sick of getting unsolicited press releases that are embargoed and do not have any relevance to my work. They are SPAM. And to discourage this practice I am posting them to my blog when I receive them in order to break their embargo which I did not agree to. Please - all of you out there sending out unsolicited PR SPAM - stop it. Stop it. Stop it.
