Way back in January I had a rant about signing up for Gamespot and getting spam from the one-time email I gave them. I also had a follow-up post in February. I linked to someone else who was experiencing the same thing. I just got a comment on that five month old post indicating that this is still going on: Everyone who signs on with Gamespot gets this rotten scam email.

So we are led to believe that Gamespot is a bunch of Spammers. They have the same M.O. as FilePlanet: Secure a bunch of popular files, offer them for download, and then make visitors who want the files run a gauntlet of ads, culminating in a forced sign-up. Gamespot seems to have taken the extra step of selling (or being careless with) that sign-up info. They can no longer claim to not know about the problem. People have been complaining about this for over half a year now. The accusation is easily provable: Just create a new account with a virgin email and you’ll get a letter from Joseph Ngoho.
So which is it Gamespot? Are you frauds, or imbeciles? Your choice.
