Sorry PR people: you’re blocked

Chris Anderson of Wired Magazine fame has blocked all harassment-level PR agents from his email inbox – and he’s published a list of their return email addresses for the world to see as well.

Funny, as professional harvesters will now be attacking them in droves. Many of the addresses on the list look like ‘no-reply’ buckets, so it’ll be a pain in the ass to change. But, I doubt this will be effective for Chris’s problem – now they’ll probably harrass him even more, and with a new address to boot.

I would have been silent on the matter, and dropped the list off to a bunch of blacklists instead.
