I signed up at bravenet to use one of their services (pretty sure it was the poll) and was *deluged* with unsolicited emails from them. No matter how many times I unsubscribed, I found that they had resubscribed me or had included my email on another list that had to be unsubscribed from yet another location on their site. I finally gave up unsubscribing and had to blacklist "bravenet.com" in my email prefs, which is something I rarely do.

Because many of their products require email addresses from users on the website where you install it, I would recommend against using their wares. If they are so unconcerned with their existing users spam tolerance, I would hate to think what they might do with email addresses gathered from people who just want to answer a poll or whatever.
