Teslaccessories.c*m (from CCI fame) has been scraping this Forum to collect email addresses to send SPAM to hapless Tesla owners.
How do I know that?
Well, remember the tests we did with Flagging posts a while ago. I created 6 Tesla accounts for that and those email addresses were ONLY every used on this forum. In fact, I specifically created the email addresses to do tests here. Last week (March 7th) I got six identical emails from teslaccessories.c*m, one sent to each of the email addresses.
The only possible conclusion is that TA uses the unhealthy practice of email address scraping from the Tesla Motors Forum to send people unsolicited spam emails.
I must say that I cannot condone this and I will certainly never order anything at teslaccessories.c*m.
(Maybe this was discussed before, but I was abroad the previous week so I may have missed it. If so, I apologize.)
