No matter how many times I've asked to be unsubscribed from eComXpo's mailing lists, I always get redundant mail from them anytime there's a new "virtual event" taking place. It makes me wonder just how much money eComXpo has spent in acquiring email lists of affiliate marketers, publishers or bloggers over the years because the various email aliases that get sent their messages are all directly correlated to specific affiliate networks or newsletters. Whatever… just don't sell/rent your email lists. It's really a bad practice (and an ineffectual one in 2009).
So, instead of relying on the good graces of the folks behind eComXpo to actually follow through with unsubscribe requests, I've had to invoke the nuclear option.
Thank goodness for GMail's filters:
It does not bode well for your business when you make folks take actions such as this for what should (legally) be your own responsibility.
