Email Marketers Gone Wild

Datran Media, an E-Mail marketing service, has agreed to a $1.1 million settlement with the New York Attorney General's office stemming from charges that Datran bought e-mail lists that it knew to be in breach of the originating sites' privacy policies.

Nelson Muntz was quoted as saying "HA HA."
