I suspect not, given all the warnings that the college has around its online alumni directory (verbiage to the effect that you can’t use the addresses for commercial purposes), but I received a piece of mail today from Comcast touting its “reliable business class communications,” and it was addressed to:

Guy Creese
MANAGER
WILLIAMS COLLEGE CLASS OF 1975

This form of address is curious, because catalog mailing lists certainly don’t know that I went to Williams–or that I graduated in the Class of ’75. The only other option I can think of is that Comcast bought a mailing list from web registrars, since I am the webmaster for the Class of ’75 web site.

In any case, has any Ephblog reader received similar mail?
