Gisela McKay
"I first ask for their card, I tell them I don't have many cards left, don't worry I'll get in touch with you. If they don't have a card-- I give them one of mine and ask them to jot down their info and in either case I tell them I'll call them in a few days."

Yeah, I meet many of these people. If there has been nothing in the conversation that has led me to believe that the person is going to bring something to the table of benefit to BOTH of us, I ask why they want my card. (I never take more than eight cards anywhere. It forces me to be selective about the people I give them to - and I am naturally selective of the people I accept them from.)

If, unsolicitedly, they send me stuff that is solely of benefit to them, and then I put them on my spam assassin black list. If I am feeling particularly peevish, I put them on multipe spam server blacklists as well. Enjoy being stuck in SORBS hell.

Got anymore bad advice to give people?
