Soon after I first created this blog, I also connected it to feedburner, and activated the “email subscription” option.
I figure some people would like to read my posts without having to remember to regularly visit my website, or muck around with feed readers, etc.
since then, I’ve had 2 people send me some very exasperated-sounding emails eg:
can u STOP sending me messiges ok it is anoying !!!!!!!
Its probably someone playing a practical joke on them, as I cannot see how someone can go to the effort of subscribing to my email feed, and then not notice that each email has unsubscribe details within it. And given the infrequent nature of my posting (once every day or three), its nowhere near as annoying as some of the real spam emails.
Anyway I politely reply, saying that they should be able to unsubscribe themselves, but I’ve unsubscribed them anyway.
