Lotusphere Spam

I don't know about you but over the last couple of days I have had quite a pile of Lotusphere related spam from exhibitors. I suppose our email addresses have been given to each of the exhibitors recently and they are trying to get as much out the week as possible. Whatever the reason it's not a welcome new addition to my inbox.

Note to vendors... unsolicited mail is only likely to make me belligerent and not buy your product so please stop it.

Update: According to Neil the spam is coming from having my card scanned at previous 'spheres. That absolves IBM of passing on details but it's still annoying though, normally we don't see the spam until after we get home.

Update 2: Both Ben and Volker have written their own experiences of this now. Hopefully if enough people complain this will be a shortlived marketing effort.
