This is a good point that should be noted -- generally,
the demographics available for postal lists are
dramatically better than what you find on opt-in email
lists. While some list owners (such as PostMaster
Direct) have done a far better than average job of
providing useful demographics for their lists, as a
whole the email list industry lags behind postal and
phone lists. You can collect data and target based on
it after you get a response from someone... but first
you'll kiss a lot of frogs....
