Maybe not directly, but TagWorld is indirectly spamming. I’m sure I’m not the only one, but I’ve gotten at least 20 emails over the last few months exactly like this:

I did some whois research and Google searches and couldn’t really find any direct relation or connection between TagWorld and freeimagine.com or Memorial Place Center. TagWorld is in Santa Monica, CA while this company appears to be in Tulsa, OK. A search on any of the contents of this message though brings up lots of instances of this same message showing up on various web pages.
I really don’t want to click the link to find out what happens, but I assume you start the signup process for TagWorld. Since Tagworld doesn’t charge users to sign up, it doesn’t really seem like a direct affiliate relationship. Perhaps TagWorld is just paying this company per user signup. I find it hard to believe that TagWorld is not compensating this company somehow, or is not somehow related to it. If I’m wrong, why would this company be spamming for TagWorld signups?
TagWorld has to know about this spam by now. Since it hasn’t stopped over the past few months, they either condone it or are behind it. That’s really unacceptable for a “Web 2.0” company to be doing this, and it puts a very bad taste in my mouth.
