This is an A-league email marketing platform. Some of the businesses I work for (I am a freelancer) use Constant Contact for their campaigns. I just can't understand how people cannot distinguish between abuses of the spammers who use a certain service, and the service itself. I guess it's easier to accuse Constant Contact as a whole, rather than trace every individual abuser. Sad...
This company offers a mailing service to everybody. Many legitimate companies use it to email existing customers - instead of investing in their own mailing service - and you can actually unsubscribe from future mailings per originating company without seeing an increase in spam.
Fraudulent companies, which also use it, should of course be rated down.

While the features of this service are good. Customer service is bad. They offer a 60 day trial for free, but before I even sent my first opt-in mailing. They deactivated my account pending payment saying that I graduated from a trial user to anemail marketer without a single mailing sent.
