Did anyone else get spammed by Sky / Neon entitled "Have you heard about NEON?‏"

I have not been a Sky customer for months. When I was I made it a point of opting-out from all emails.

The spam is by a firm called "", a self-professed New Zealand leader in data-driven marketing.

I guess this leader in data-driven marketing forgot about New Zealand's inconvenient "Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act", even though they are based in New Zealand, and marketing to New Zealanders.

While Sky was a monopoly, they bullied customers, copyrighted TV schedules (this ability is unique in the world), and actively threatened legal action against anyone who wanted to publish an Electronic Programming Guide for their home DVR.

I'd recommend the DIA to actively threaten Neon and Ubiquity with legal action. "Ain't karma a b****?"

Oh yeah, and did I mention Neon's content is less fresh than MC Hammer's unwashed parachute pants

I know Sky / Neon is desperate to compete with Netflix, but breaking the law by spamming the country is not improving their reputation.
