    Hi Captaincharisma, do you remember who it was because the scanners were only supposed to be used after a demostration and interest? I made it very clear and as far as I saw, it never happened, it was also far too busy for us to waste time doing that. Thanks.

    I can't remember but he tried scanning me before offering me a demonstration. Told him I wasn't interested and left, no harm done.

    Yep I prefer too avoid zapping and get the sales team to write out info - but only if there is a prize attached !

    In more on-topic news, had two calls today where the lead generators had clearly ignored what I had expressed interest in and just forged ahead selling the latest shiny-shiny. As for drive-by scanning, I kept my badge in my shirt pocket, stops that nonsense dead!

    sounds like what I do on web forms like smartboard that require an email for no reason usually use something like bill.gates@apple.com or no@thanks.com

    I've had an email thanking me for visiting someone's stand at BETT, yet I remained 300 odd miles away the whole week!

    I had my Phil J Fry of Future Drama school badge but people just scanned it without reading any of my information so wonder how long it will take for them to realise.

    We had a few information packs sent to the "GLaDOS Wrangler" last year.

    And anything that arrives for "Miss/Mrs [my last name]" gets binned by the office.

    I didn't see any zapping this year I have to be honest.

    I sent all my spam out this morning, but this was mostly to suppliers
