Stuff That Sucks: Unsubscribe

Why is it that when you recieve unwanted spam emails or texts it takes so much effort to unsubscribe. What’s the deal with replying a blank message with STOP or UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject line? I mean, why do that then straight away send another one back letting you know that you have been removed from the mailing list? They just contradict themselves. And some even say they will take at least 10 days to remove you. Obviously they don’t want to stop sending their spam to you, it’s free advertising. What makes me laugh is sometimes they actually give you one last chance to change your mind.

I recently have been unsubscribing to a lot of rubbish so I don’t get 50 emails a day. But after all the effort of sending blank messages and filling out forms, I still get the same spam everyday.

That is the stuff that sucks.
