in thread how do I extract contact data from websites?

For those of you who are anti-spammers, I am not into spamming. I only wish to create a list that I can use to market my package for one of the construction trades.
That is spamming.

It's spamming because those people did not ask you to send them email. They published their address so that customers could write them. Not so they could have ads shoved down their throat.

You are evil.

I will not help you.

I know many hundreds of others that will not help you either.

May you rot in hell.

    Speaking up because I --ed this one. I hate spam as much as the next guy, but obviously this monk is misguidedly thinking he's not doing something bad. It would have been more productive to correct him as cjf++ did, rather than simply berating him and adding an unnecessary insult to top it off. Of course he may be putting up a naive facade, but I prefer to err in favour of innocence and if he is indeed manipulating, then simply refusing him an answer about the task at hand is sufficient.
