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.

"Remember that startup that died because it was scraping emails?" said no one ever.

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.

@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.

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.

@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 :-)
