sideloaders.com is spamming me

I just got the SPAM email below offering sell me Omega 4D MultiLoaders
(whatever those are).

Clearly they got my email from scrapping the web or somewhere because
they send to marc-at-tradeshow@nozell.com (from one of my blog
entries), marc-blog-feedback@nozell.com (used only here on my blog)
and marc-i-saw-your-weblog@nozell.com (same thing)

What also pisses me off is they included this graphic so I had to
download 130k of their junk -- three times!

REMEMBER: Don't do business with companies that use Unsolicited
Commerical Email (UCE) to market. It is an unethical marketing
technique. Thanks!
