I apologize, I misunderstood, I thought you were asserting that from  
your position on the editorial board and were seeking a response from  
people here.  I must have misread.

I don't think that you should feel bad about this, it is an honest  
mistake, the conferences are meant to be broadly appealing and the  
journal does seem real enough, one of my colleagues at Virginia Tech  
published an article in it apparently.  The key to preventing the  
circulation of this 'conference spam' is to just send out conference  
information about the conferences in which you have relationships   
with or are familiar with, that's a guideline that I tend to follow.

I do want to thank our Librarian Colleague though
