Does it fit into one of the categories I defined? 

I wasn't overly clear in the second example of the last category. Seeing someone working for someone that's in a specific area and then reaching out to them about something specific to their area... probably not. 

Further examples of yes\no for targeted marketing: Most any equipment vendor, unless it's quite geographically specific to someone, no, not unique enough. New provider, data center, IX, etc. geographically near a given company and they find "you" work at that company... sure, that seems like a perfectly valid use.

Do you view collecting lists of nanog members and using it for 
unsolicited marketing purposes as bad or not?
