Syngress: "We don't buy from spammers"

Syngress Publishing has issued the following statement about the ad banner that recently appeared at the SpecialHam.com spammer forum:

"Neither Syngress nor any of our associates sponsored the banner ad on SpecialHam.com in any way, shape, or form. We were completely unaware that it existed before seeing mention of it in your article. We are currently doing everything possible to have the banner removed. We do not in any way condone the spam trade and absolutely none of our marketing efforts or dollars are going towards any Web site, magazine, group, etc to support the spam trade or to entice them to buy our book."

It's kind of a moot point right now, since SpecialHam.com appears to be down again. (A screen grab of the page showing the banner is here.)
