We've been ravished by an early on-slot of Spring here in San Francisco this week. It has been rather distracting and makes one want to stick around for the up coming Drupalcon SF and Gilbane SF events, just to name a few.

Meanwhile, we're heading for the door just as fast as possible. But just before the shoes slap the pavement, here's a big thanks to the current CMSWire sponsors (follow them on Twitter). It's you who have kept our wheels turning and the keyboards merrily clacking. We are thankful.

The Blacklist of Shame: Bulldog Solutions, Inc.

Sadly, we also feel compelled to note that not all of you are so fabulous. This week our blacklist super star is Austin-based Bulldog Solutions, Inc. (CEO - Rob Solomon, President - Todd Davison, and totally unresponsive VP of Finance - Andrew Peoples). The Bulldog folks have been rep'ing companies like Open Text, Marklogic and Siteworx.

What the company's clients may not know is that Bulldog doesn't pay small media companies like us when they feel they have other priorities (we know from repeat performances). So dear Bulldog, since -- when it's not to your liking -- you don't return emails or phone calls, we'll ask you publicly: Isn't 6 months long enough to sit on our invoices? According to the IAB Terms & Conditions, it's far too long and you're breaking the industry rules by not paying within 30 days of invoicing and by not responding to requests for information. I just want to be sure that all your clients are aware of how you do business and just what kinds of seeds you're sowing for them.
