Browsing my Junk folder this morning I noticed spam from Stereophile. Clicking on the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom (not always a wise thing to do since it tells the spammer they've got a good email address) sends me to a web page that appears to be Source Interlink but fails to unsubscribe. I am guessing this is because it has failed to capture an email address? Is there an alternative way to stop this spam such as a toggle somewhere under my user settings?
Unsubscribe link fails.
Can you describe this spam? What is the e-mail promoting or offering? I will try to find out what it is and then find out how recipients can get off the list.
It is titled "Stereophile Newsletter August 2011 - 2nd Edition" sent from email@example.com. It looks like an advert for a newsletter since there is an option to subscribe to the newsletter at the bottom plus there are adverts for various of Stereophile's sponsors like Definitive Technology, Needledoctor, Headphones.com and Emotiva. It is html and google classifies it as spam and puts it in the Junk folder.
Thank you. The e-mail you're describing is our eNewsletter, which contains links to articles posted on our website.
Ariel is working with our IT people to fix the "Unsubscribe" link. We're sorry about the inconvenience.
Maybe while they are looking into this e-newsletter issue they can also KILL the god damn pop up box that tries to sell me a magazine subscription every time I open the webpage. Sometimes I think that "x" to close the advertisement is a hot link in disguise to open the advertisement page anyway.
