Unsolicited Commercial E-Mail from Xlibris

I received an email from an author representative of Xlibris Corporation who said that he found my impressive profile on Yahoo and that if I’d like to venture into self-publishing, he’d appreciate it I kept Xlibris in mind.

When I replied stating that I did not appreciate his unsolicited spam email, he stated that he was not sending spam that he was an author representative who was just doing his job in the most decent way possible.

There is nothing decent about sending unsolicited spam email and a quick Google search shows that I’m not alone. Other writers have received Xlibris unsolicited sales pitch.

Why would a publishing company need to resort to such tactics to gain new business anyhow?
