Anybody else get an email from this company? I don't think they have any history with me so I am guessing they just went through the wakeworld and grabbed emails to SPAM people?

I'll contact the company and let them know that this is not only a bad way to do business, but also illegal!

You DO NOT have to display your email address in your profile. If you want to avoid this type of stuff, go into your profile and click on the checkbox that says, "Do not display my real e-mail address with my profile." People will still be able to contact you via Private Messages, but they won't see your email address.

It's a shame to because I ordered his heavy duty capped guide pole covers and they are sweet. Was about to post some pictures of them and then I saw this thread.

I've bought from these guys before and the prices were good and so was the service. I will buy from them again! I don't mind getting a boating related email from time to time.

I don't mind getting emails that I request. I absolutely can't stand unsolicited spam. F-off maddog.

Bingo. I can't believe people actually publicly post their email. You open yourself open to all kinds of spam when you do.

Seems that everyone that received this spam has there email in their profile too.

I got one from wakemakers.com, I don't really mind it but can see how many would not.
