Laboratoire de Biotechnologie du Luxembourg S.A.: Spamming scientists

Laboratoire de Biotechnologie du Luxembourg S.A. (genecust.com, distribio.com) is spamming addresses obtained from articles published in scientific journals. As far as I can tell, they’re doing their own spamming from a VPS at sivit.org (a service provided by Nerim).

  1. The disclaimer at the bottom of this email suggests that they don’t even claim that they are emailing an opt-in list, and consider objections to spam on the level of being personally disturbed by something otherwise innocuous. :/ I’m not impressed.
