CIT and Melissa Data

Ever wonder why CIT sound exactly like marketing professionals? It's because they are. Both Craig Ranke and Aldo Marquis are employed as sales representatives by a small but very profitable company called Melissa Data, located in Rancho Santa Margarita, California. Oddly, Ranke and Marquis have publicly admitted to promoting CIT from their workplace, with no apparent concern about getting in trouble with their employer - even while posting threatening statements from Melissa Data's IP address. But we really enter twilight zone territory when we discover that Melissa Data set up a fake news site for the apparent sole purpose of publishing a CIT press release. At this point, we really have to ask just what kind of company is Melissa Data?

And what is Inspiriant Solutions?
