I can. 

The Online Trust Alliance (OTA) claims to represent 'consumers'; they say so repeatedly in submissions to the U.S. government. They are an industry association of advertisers and emailers http://otalliance.org/about/board.html (Mr. Fox? This way to your chicken coop …). But yet, at the Email Experience Coalition conference just this past Monday, their Executive Director, Founder & CEO , Craig Spiezle, apparently has this to say ""Personal Identifying Infornaiton (PII) is a concept of yesterday". 

Obviously, anything from yesterday is bad.
