M80IM.com does not care about bloggers. They are a two time offender with Hustler of Culture. And you know what? I give them press every time they write me. They are very clever marketers! If M80 cared at all about their mission statement, they'd maybe read the posts on the sites they were trying to pitch to.

I'm reaching out to you on behalf of M80 & MADCATZ regarding the release of MAD CATZ OFFICIAL NBA TEAM CONTROLLERS (for PS2 and Xbox) to see if you'd be interested in helping us spread the word to other Gamers & NBA fans. Would it be possible to post some info on http://www.cs.northwestern.edu/~hunicke/blog/ -say for instance posting the press release, a banner or even a review? We'd be happy to send you either a Ps2 or Xbox controller (NBA - team of your choice) for your efforts.
Please let me know if your interested.
Thank you for your email. I would love to help you out if your PR firm could for once, get my name and or my website right. Happy holidays!
