fleurya, street teamers were sort of proto-spammers. pre-internet, it was a street level way for labels to interact with fans without them realizing they were being advertised to, which, especially with any sort of semi-hip music scene people is important since semi-hip music people tend to shy away from commercialism.

now of course "street teaming" is as prevalent as ever, on the internet and off. people are paid to mention products around us in our every day lives, others drop posts like these into forums where they might grab the attention of a handful of people. it's basically forced/planned word of mouth advertising.
Thanks Eric, you're a sweetheart!
