I've also had a run-in with Mr. Maloney. He originally confirmed my
unsubscription from his mailing lists, then continued to spam me even
after my third request to unsubscribe me, he then lied to me again by
claiming that the fourth complaint was my first message to him and that
I have never asked him to unsubscribe me.
He is also sure that his questionable handling of his mailing lists is
not spamming, but that he is sending "community announcements". He was
not willing to explain me how and when I actually joined his "small,
closely managed global community, providing stunning thought leadership
in collaboration, social networks, KM and community" (aha).
I have the impression that he is an expert in asocial behaviour through
email flame wars, as is apparent by the wording of his message to Don
Steiny. He sent similar, though less threatening messages to me when I
insisted that he tells me how I got on his mailing list.
I find this behaviour curious for someone working in "social networking"
and in "collaboration" and who needs speakers for his seminars and
people who pay to attend them. John, I wish you best of luck for your
endevaours, but here's a hint: Don't alienate the people you want to
work with and for you.
SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social
network researchers (http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/). To unsubscribe, send
an email message to [log in to unmask] containing the line
UNSUBSCRIBE SOCNET in the body of the message.
