This isn't exactly ethical though, is it?

@akingcreative Sometimes, being vicious is necessary. http://kumar.party/2016/01/26/so... That being said, never do anything illegal.

@akingcreative Most lead gen companies abuse rotating IPs and more to get databases of info.

@datarade "Hey Man, here's a gun. It can shoot a piece of metal so fast that it can kill someone instantly. That being said, never do anything illegal." Points for it being a well built tool but you're just loading scammers and spammers with more ammo. I can't think of any situation where I (or anyone else) would be pleased with the fact that I was subscribed to their list using a tool like this.

@akingcreative I don't necessarily care. Also, I didn't build the product. I've already come to understand in my short time in web that the internet is a gangster's paradise, sometimes you have to be a F****** mobster to get a product out there. Sometimes, it's necessary. Thank goodness Kalanick is die hard about getting Uber everywhere as it reduces total car count.

@datarade How you make money is more important than the money you make. That's all I can say man.
Rob Bye@robjbye · I build products and companies
@akingcreative @datarade End of the day money literally brings absolutely nothing. Not doing nasty things is much more important than profit!
Alex King@akingcreative · Creative Expert
@datarade You're on a whole other level buddy. How does sharing a link to your own blog with facts of corporations being unethical justify what this company is doing? Just because they're successful doesn't mean they've been ethical along the way. Your concept of a "Gangsters Paradise" is hilarious.

@akingcreative Yeh stuff like this just makes people crawl deeper into their hole - but it is a useful tool but then again...
Alex King@akingcreative · Creative Expert
@samir_doshi You can see how "in the bubble" he is. It's hilarious.
Barn Sweetman@barnsweetman · Megalodon
@akingcreative he's not really. Tools like this help companies generate more leads and bring in more business. You didn't think sales based startups grew using magic did ya?? :)

@akingcreative @samir_doshi Alex, you might be missing the difficulty of how important it is to stack the funnel in any web startups.

@akingcreative Just as we humans need to make red blood cells to live, businesses need to make profits to survive. But the purpose of human life is far more than simply making red blood cells, just like the purpose of business is far more than making profits. #EthicalWorld
Alex King@akingcreative · Creative Expert
@loganrspangler I think you may have missed the point. We're talking about an email scraping app and you're talking about the purpose of human life. Let's not get too ahead of ourselves.
Alex King@akingcreative · Creative Expert
@datarade Probably
Logan Spangler@loganrspangler · Dot-Connector | Conscious Capitalist
@akingcreative I totally get the point. I was simply paying you a compliment. You yourself said, "How you make money is more important than the money you make." Web scrapers are tremendously useful tools. I'm all about "ethical hacking". As you might agree, there is a fine line between use and abuse. That's all I'm saying ;)

@datarade good list. I have a bunch here, too: bit.ly/saleshacking
David Kram@davidkram · Entrepreneur. Financial Consultant
@writerpollock great list
djjaron@jaronrayhinds · etechsolution.com
@datarade forgot scrapinghub.com from the creators of Scrapy :)

I love this product. It's like a much cheaper version of emailhunter.co,clearbit.com, and fullcontact.com. $0.04/hr and $5 per a project. That's sooo cheapp.
Kevin KlimanHiring@kkliman · Founder @gethumi.
@datarade how have the results been for you and how long do your campaigns normally take. i like the interface and idea but didn't have a great experience from running 2 campaigns.
Mark Espinola@mespi · Founder, Gradehub
I agree with the comments regarding the CAN-SPAM act. Assuming ethical concerns are addressed, it would be nice to collect the associated name and title too.
Justin Winter@jcwinter · Co-founder & CEO, Boostopia
@mespi can spam in the US applies to consumer addresses. Cold emailing a business regarding a business concern is excluded from the provisions. It is unlikely that anyone would be using this for a B2C context. B2B, totally legal and kosher :-)

@jcwinter @mespi BOOM. Thank you Justin.
