Why AtomicPR Sucks Ass. And How They are Breaking the Law, Too.

A little while ago, I blogged about how some public relations firms were spamming me.  In short, I was getting tired of random PR firms sending me emails about stuff that I didn’t care about and thus further cluttering up my inbox.  image

These random carpet bombing strategies were both abusive and stupid – some poor client is paying their requisite $10-15k a month for the PR firm to make a bad impression on me.  In fact, I alerted a VC friend of mine that one of the firms was carpet bombing about his recent financings and he was none too happy.

One PR firm, in particular has really taken this to a new level:  Atomic PR.

The folks seriously suck ass.  Not only do they carpet bomb me, but every time I politely ask them to take me off the list of the stupid stuff they send me, they either one: don’t reply, or two: reply that they will, but never do.  And then I get an email from some new “bright and shining face” informing me of some “exciting news” that I couldn’t care less about. 

I tried to warn them, but apparently they didn’t believe me when I said that I would call them out. 

So, I officially start my boycott today, of AtomicPR until they vow to change their ways.  Don’t hire them.  And PLEASE link, share and retweet this post, so that when folks search for “AtomicPR,” the Google gods rank this post highly.

And Atomic guys – if you don’t stop, the next step is to report you to the appropriate government authorities since you don’t really allow anyone to opt out of their communications. 

If anyone has a lot of time on their hands and wants to email my friends at Atomic PR, here are their email addresses:
