American Seniors Association: Wants a Spamtrap to Join

The American Seniors Association (ASA), which describes itself as “the conservative alternative” to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), is sending bulk email advertisements to an email address that never existed. The ASA only started spamming this email address last week. The ESP is Streamsend.

Unfortunately I can’t recommend the AARP as a non-spamming alternative to the ASA; the AARP has a long record of spamming. It disturbs me, however, to see that the ASA does not appear to have learned from one of the AARP’s bigger mistakes: spamming people whom they want to join. :/ You’d think that anybody who runs a membership-based organization would understand just what spam does to their reputation and their ability to contact people by using legitimate, non-spam email.
