You should head over to
and read Chris Guillebeau's excellent article "Why People Hate Marketers!".
HOWEVER! Chris seems to belong to the "let's keep each other's asses covered" club.
When I pointed out that one of the commentators, Sonia Simone does several marketing gigs including "Marketing for Nice People" with Naomi Dunford for which she and Naomi charge the princely sum of $197, Chris emailed me back that he knows Sonia and Naomi.
He did not publish my comment. So perhaps his ethics are a facade rather than truly sincere.
