P. R. Paige: Spamming to Advertise His New Book

P. R. Paige, who has written a “romantic comedy” (his term) about male infidelity, is emailing advertisements for that book to a very dirty purchased list. Mr. Paige’s spam just barely qualifies as Mainsleaze, but it was sent through ESP Constant Contact.

It appears that Mr. Paige bought a list from a web site and emailed it through Constant Contact, in violation of Constant Contact’s terms of service, which forbid use of purchased lists. Although Mr. Paige writes books, he apparently either cannot or does not read instructions.

  1. Investigating complaint. Thanks for heads up.

  2. Thank you for the info the issue has been resolved and they are no longer sending from our network.

  3. Unfortunately he’s probably going to move on to a less picky ESP. <wry grin> But I’m glad Constant Contact does not tolerate this sort of nonsense. 🙂
