Bear with me adgrunts, as this is the best place to alert PR people to this, fast. Yes, I'm assuming that someone reads the pages they email. We have a contact email - hostmaster at adland dot tv - where we get all the news tips, press releases and other stuff sent to. These emails are then automagically forwarded to everyone here. But only if the "To:" line in the email has the above mentioned email address in it.
See, a lot of spam is "To:" someone else. A lot of mass-mailing is "To:" another addy as well.
As it turns out, a lot of PR people create a mailing list which then makes the "To:" field reflect the senders (their own) address. In all of these cases the email gets stuck on the server and it may take weeks before we see it.
Remedy: want to contact us, create an email, put our address in the "To:" field, and send. It's pretty easy, really. Do not mass email press releases to us as we simply won't see it.
