We work in an electronic industry, and as such, one might think that email would be an appropriate form of communication. At least that’s the notion with which I decided today to reach out to some prospective new industry contacts and apprise them of available editorial opportunities at Adotas.
Imagine, then, my surprise at receiving an automated response email from one company instructing me to delete all contacts within its domain, while also spelling out the finer details of the CAN-SPAM Act.
And also, this tersely worded email from an allegedly real human being:
“Please remove us from your list. We did not subscribe to it. I can’t find the unsubscribe link. Also, you wrote the word, ‘hell,’ not hello. You should have your spam emails proofed.”
Wow, a combination spam/grammar cop. How often does one encounter those?!?
Again, we work in an electronic industry. If you can’t tolerate an unsolicited email offering you FREE coverage of your business, there’s a cabin in the woods I’d like to sell you.
In other words: Lighten up, Kaczynski.
