Ah, marketing spammers. You crazy kids.
Spewing out your junk as if you’re doing the world a huge solid, when in fact that nasty discharge coming from your email client is today’s herpes. You’re the modern day pushers, telling anyone who will listen how they simply cannot live without your particular brand of [insert product here].
You’re unabashed in your attempts, breaching with impunity the time-tested and proven covenant that it’s simply not polite to knock on a stranger’s door. You use fuzzy logic to justify your wayward ways, finding new and slippery ways to get us to accept your emails. Using seemingly innocent methods like asking for an email address at the cash register, the term ‘opt-out’ is your mantra, and it’s the sword by which you live and die.
Often, you don’t care whether permission to bug people has been given explicitly; it’s enough that it’s been implied, under many laws, anyway. Anyway, that’s what email lists from banks, insurance companies, and other institutions are for. The permission has been given to them, albeit buried under a mountain of legalspeak, so all you have to do is pay a fee to latch on like the bottom feeders that you are. And if the email gets intercepted by a good spam filter, then find ways to circumvent those spam filters. How dare they try to block your unwanted filth?
