Stephenson Group -- please stop spamming

New Jersey public relations firm Stephenson Group doesn't seem to have received the widely circulated memo about how people hate spam, especially journalists.

For some reason, one of their staff people, Richard Virgilio, keeps sending me pitches about Western Union and small business. I don't write about either topic.

I sent Richard a note last time pointing out that this is irrelevant material and spam gives PR a bad name. I cc'd his bosses, who are listed on their web site.

But here is Richard again, sending me his spam pitches about Western Union and small business.

The company seems to offer a number of services, but they really should add "Spamming" to their capabilities.

They have definitely earned their place on my blocked domain list.
