1) Akamai won't be using any lists in the future to do e-mail marketing.
That's a firm commitment that we're prepared to make. Anyone doing
so will be terminated.
2) Akamai's policy has been and remains that no Akamai salespeople are
to e-mail potential customers unless they've been given permission
to do so by a human. Violations have led, and will lead, to termination.
As it should be. If only every company could be big enough to stand up and
say "We made a mistake, we learned from that mistake and we'll strive never
to do it again."
I, for one, applaud this.
