Leaving aside the business these guys are in and how they accomplish it, does this qualify under the CAN-SPAM act as spam? It appears commercial, since they are building a database of email addresses for commercial purposes. I assume they've trolled the DNS WHOIS records for the email, which I believe is another violation by my understanding.
These guys have been pushing flakey and ineffectual tech since 1999, but it seems they may have crossed a line here.
