Plant a Tree, Spam a Friend

I have been in contact with Trees for the Future and frankly I cannot see why they are still partners with Mamasource. Not ONE thing has changed with Mamasource. Not ONE. They still have their email servers configured like those of the common spammer, they still do NOT provide and UNSUBSCRIBE link that actually will unsubscribe you from their daily emails or email digest and they are still HARVESTING and HIJACKING unsuspecting women's email address books on a daily basis.

Artie Wu may claim there is a programming error, but in my research I've found that Artie Wu is not technically challenged. Quite the opposite is true.

And he is still spamming you and other women in the name of moms, trees and breast cancer.

Frankly, I think Artie Wu is a smooth talker and has fooled his partners and subscribers into believing that all this spam is a result of programming errors. With his background with Vividence and all that he's done in the past with "intelligence mining" I find this very, very difficult to swallow. Artie Wu is far from technically challenged. He is a bulldog. He is known for getting information from his competitors with techniques that he won't divulge. His company Vividence, was one of the top places to go to mine data for companies. He sold that company for about $22M and he has top-notch programmers on board. He knows EXACTLY what he is doing.

And yet he still blames all this spam on programming errors, or better yet, on YOU.

I think not.

Please contact the good folks at Trees For The Future and tell them that you are sick of getting spammed in the name of their organization!

Their number is 1-800-643-0001

Thanks for checking into this. I was a victim of the mamasource spam and just wrote the trees for the future org to let them know, too.

I searched and searched and found a way to unsubscribe from the site. I still have friends who are getting the daily emails - everyone just deletes them.
