    I got one too, and I wouldn't classify it as real SPAM. It's unsolicited mail, ok, but I could be interested in the offer. Still, a post the catalyst and probably the mod_perl list would have been enough. Or they could by a banner ad on eg perlmonks
    • It IS spam and I have sent a mail to them and their hosting provider asking for it to stop. Just because the object being advertised is somewhat interesting to you doesn't mean it's not spam to the rest of us. Remember, the reason we all get 100s of Viagra ads into our mailboxes every day is that 1 out of every umpteenthousand recipients actually replies and orders some. So please don't use this offer, that'll just make the CPAN addresses more interesting to commercial spammers, which we can all do without.
      • I won't use it, mainly because I have as much use for (catalyst) hosting as for viagra. I agree, it's SPAM, but it's more "spam bacon sausage and spam" than proper "spam spam spam spam spam spam spam beaked beans spam spam spam and spam" :-)
