Apparently the common theme is that we all registered for the VON 
conference at one point.

Aha, list re-purposing. That's something completely different - I cannot
speak for your local or federal laws on spam, but in the UK we could
fairly well go to town on a company doing that (not in law, sadly, but
certainly in terms of professional shame through whichever organisations
they belong to).

I really can't understand why all of you are saying it's no big deal!

Er... we're not. I'm not, certainly, and I haven't read anyone else as
having done so. What we're saying is that there's nothing sinister (as
the original reply to your message thought), that there's a simple
explanation.

As I said originally - if this is a company with any professional pride
whatsoever, contact their CEO. Going from the top down can be
instructive at the very least, if not actually productive.
