The agony of trying to unsubscribe | James Veitch

It happens to all of us: you unsubscribe from an unwanted marketing email, and a few days later another message from the same company pops up in your inbox. Comedian James Veitch turned this frustration into whimsy when a local supermarket refused to take no for an answer. Hijinks ensued. TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.

The best part about this is that his emails are actually generating ticket numbers in a ticketing system somewhere! not only is his bot being a pain, but someone actually has to go in and clear out all those tickets at some point! I call that a win!

This. THIS, is how you troll people. Not by scamming, not by leading them to stupid stuff, no, use it for good and get the people annoying you to piss off.

There needs to be a LAW against companies which refuse to let you unsubscribe from their email ads. After conviction, the companies should have to pay you $100, or some such. That would STOP a ton of spam email.

I have a tried and true method of unsubscribing. Newegg was the worst offender. In the end, after more than a dozen emails that were ignored. I sent another one stating I was going to send horse genitalia images to all the nuns houses in the city emblazoned with Newegg marketing material. Got my first reply from Newegg within an hour apologising for past service and I was now off the lists. This method has worked twice more since then.
