Today’s email brought two interesting offers. The first was a FREE report entitled “10 Steps to Email Success.” The offer was from a well-known company so I didn’t worry that it was dangerous to click. The first click took me to a web page where I first needed to enter a lot of information about [...]
Yesterday I took time to try to opt out of a dozen or so mailing lists. Some of them were duplicates for my 2 email addresses. Some of them are there because someone purchaed or “scraped” my address from the web. Some are things I asked for but no longer want or need. Whatever the [...]

I had never heard of it until this morning – and now I’ve just spent 4 hours fooling with it! Darn new technology anyway.
