" 	It raises an interesting philosophical question; is the original 
company that paid for the compaign and benefits from the sales 
responsible?  I don't claim to have an all-seeing answer, and would like 
to hear other people's opinions.

Stupid LookOut didn't quote your email :) Anyway.........

It depends on the company. I believe _some_ clearly know they are hiring a
spammer on the grounds that they can deny knowing it. I believe this
percentage is rising. There are a few who don't know they are hiring
spammers. Trying to figure out which is which is tough. But in this
particular case, the correct thing was done by not listing the flower
company. Add then to a watch list. If they show up on radar again, launch
the stinger!!
