Registered for #ASM2014 but could not go; meeting sounded good; but annoyed ASM sold my info to advertisers

Very annoyed with the American Society for Microbiology right now as I have been collecting some of the junk mail I got associated with the meeting.  I presume that ASM sold my information to these advertisers.  I did not explicitly give permission for them to do that.  Not good.

To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
