Dear startups and startup publicists — please stop harassing NYT columnist Jason Pontin. Since we alerted you to the fact that Jason was using Facebook to solicit interesting profile candidates, you’ve apparently bombarded him with friend requests. Jason feels this is an “abuse” and asks you to stop.
I’m curious as to what the expectation was here. But it certainly brings new meaning to “notice by association”…ask for it, get it, then beg for it to stop.
