Webmiep is pissed off

Sep 27th 2010 at 6:50 PM

I am a member of several email lists for which i agreed to receive emails. I use gmail so I see the subject lines. I get a lot that read: you have a new referral, you have received  a payment, please confirm your subscription (for sites I never joined), re:something and simular.

Than when I open it usually says "I get emails like this every day. You should join this or that...

It really pisses me off. personaly, if the senders is known I imidiatly create a filter, when the sender is recognazible to send  mails from this person to spam. because I will never trust this person. The abuse of mailings in this way is very bad for online business in general. And that is a shame. Because there are mailings with good content too.

Some credit mailers have rules that certain email subjects are forbidden and you can sent a complaint about it. But who does that? I do'nt. Not yet, because I am to buzy.

But maybe I will report those email in the near future. maybe we all should do this because emails like this reflect negatif on emails from lists in general. A lot of email list are blacklisted from certain email lists, regardless the email subject.

What do you think?

Some emailers fail to check how the messages they send look like. The first question they must ask is, "Would I read this mail if sent by somebody?" Another thing that pisses me off is the headline - "Your payment processed".
