In general, I agree with your statement. Maybe I should have said to
send a note, and append the spam.
This is I feel a special case, because CNet *is* the media! Sending
mail to abuse@, slashdot, etc. will likely be ignored as long as they consider
this a service (from a telephone call to them - a low level tech. who "asked"
a supervisor, and didn't want to forward me - seem quite bothered by the whole
process and left a bad taste in my mouth).
It seems that the editors are *exactly* the people to send copies to. I
did originally note that I left off the list the names and email addresses of
executives as they did not seem appropriate (corporate types are neither the
"media" or technical staff - so here we agree on at least part).
Beside, if you add a note, you are not spamming them, but merely
"informing the media" just as you recommend:)
I'll give this more though (I have only gotten one so far).
