Don’t Subscribe to Time Lowe’s Programs…

There are thousands of marketers on the Internet, each trying to push various money-making schemes on us. Some of them are good guys, some play by the rules but tend to swamp you with emails, and others are just plain nasty.

I occasionally subscribe to the lists of these people as the result of the offer of a free gift – maybe some software, a script or a report. Then follows the inevitable flood of emails pushing stuff that I’m not really interested in.

More often than not, the emails mount up in my inbox and never get read – especially those from people who are not really promoting anything new.

From time-to-time, I have a purge of my inbox and Unsubscribe from most of the lists, and being a rainy day today, I decided to do just that.

One of the lists I’m on belongs to Tim Lowe. Looking at the bottom of his emails there are links to confirm membership, update your email address and unsubscribe.

Except that there isn’t! The unsubscribe line is formatted to look like a lilnk, but it’s just plain text. There is no way to unsubscribe from his list.
Not only is this ILLEGAL, it’ annoying and shows signs of desperation on his part. If he was confident in what he was promoting, he wouldn’t have to resort to underhand tactics to keep you on his list.

So he’s now in my most severe spam filter (the email doesn’t end up in Junk – it gets deleted right away). I also clicked the link to change my email address and put HIS email address in its place.
