Once upon a time I subscribed to a slightly political sounding tech email newsletter that had something to do with the Internet and Washington D.C.
I fell into the trap that is the political spam machine. Once you give your email address to one of them, they sign you up for all of them. The worst part of it is Gmail's filters don't work on them!
They have nothing to do with what I was interested in in the first place.
Come and see this moron running for governor!
This jerk is running for president! Give us your money!
And so on.
So I got one today from demandprogress.org
I have never been to their website and I have no idea what they are about and I don't care.
I followed the unsubscribe link and it had a comment section.
Here is what I wrote after getting home from an 11 hour shift at work and a head ache:
I am VERY tired off all you assholes spamming me with this crap that I never signed up to receive in the first place. You are worse than spammers. THEY go away, and Gmail's spam filters work on them. I keep unsubscribing from the lists that you subscribe me two with out asking me, so I have started marking all of you as spam in gmail. I am hoping to start a campaign to get a bunch of people to start marking your crap as spam so your drivel will end up in the spam folder for everyone on gmail.
I'm tired of your underhanded ways. I hate both the left and the right.
Both parties should be outlawed.
This is the progress I demand.
