Reunion.com, discontinued

Last may I wrote Reunion.com spam alert, which ended this way:

  I am among the least litigious people on Earth. But I can’t help but wonder … Could I (or we) sue these bastards for false representation? Invasion of privacy?

I’m still getting comments there, I guess because (I just discovered), my post is the lucky top result in searches for reunion.com spam. The total number of results is 374,000.

It’s obvious from recent comments that Reunion.com is still behaving badly. At this point, however, I have no interest in suing or otherwise going after the company.

For those interested, I suggest reading the Wikipedia article on Reunion.com, especially the sections Privacy, E-mail Spoofing and Better Business Bureau. The Los Angeles branch of the latter gives Reunion.com a “D.” I’d vote for an “F,” but any bad grade is better than none.

    If we go that way why don’t you type hi5.com spam you’ll get half as results. Or, God forbids, myspace.com spam…over 7 million results. Or Bebo.com spam. What about facebook.com spam? Over 18 million results.

    As you can see many networks use what you call the invite a friend ‘spam method’ in which people choose to invite someone but they are not careful to select manual and not automatic invite.

    I got an invite from Reunion from an old high school friend… I almost filled in the form, but then Googled it and came to your blog. WHEW!!! Thanks for the heads up, I can find another way to contact that old friend, if he even was trying to get hold of me?
