Do you not understand that these two statements are mutually exclusive?  How 
can you possibly promote the legal changes for opt-out and then claim a 
policy of opt-in from day one?  Small business don't deserve to be able to 
SPAM business just because they aren't large.

As far as I'm concerned Mardev was principally involved in passing the 
convoluted law to being with making you a two-faced, wish-washy, snake-oil 
selling salesperson hiding behind laws and blowing wherever the winds take 

However, if Mardev doesn't actually send B2B opt-out emails, then I imagine 
you won't end up on an RBL.  But if you do, expect to be submitted for 
listing in a heartbeat.
