Why do you consider such an invitation as "spam"? There are many tech writers who *do* write computer books--whether they are published by commercial book publishers or manuals accompanying software applications.

Persistant invitations to join a particular mail list would indeed qualify as "spam" IMHO, but a single one to announce such a group to those that are interested seems hardly to rise to that level.

There is plenty of "commercial, unsolicited email" that fits the definition of "spam"--but how does a free email list fit within that definition?

Methinks you have simply overreacted.

Has anyone else received an invitation to join the computerbookauthors
group on yahoo groups? I received the invitation to an email I only use for
techwr-l and the copyediting list - where I have never indicated that I
author computer books. I've sent an email to their abuse department, as
indicated in the fine print of the message. I'm wondering if anyone else
got this invitation.
