I don't think there's anything wrong with sending MySQL webinar
invitation to PostgreSQL users.  People may not be interested, but
that doesn't make it spam.  I do think there's something wrong with
signing people up for your mailing list without asking them and/or
failing to remove them when the so request.  What I find interesting
is that I received a webcast invitation from you in my EnterpriseDB
account earlier this week.  To my knowledge, I have never subscribed
to ANY mailing list from that account, so I'd like to understand how
you got that address and who asked you to add me.  If someone (who?)
at EnterprIseDB provided you with a list of emails and explicitly
authorized you to add those people to your list, fine.  If not, you're
probably doing something you shouldn't be.  Which is it?
