New Spam Busting Technique

by Marinka on June 5, 2012

Remember how we learned a great way to unsubscribe from those annoying email updates?  Well, welcome to a new and improved  technique.

The other day I noticed that I’ve been getting a lot of emails from Mets.com.  You know, the baseball team.  Which is weird because although I like them fine, and have recently  gone so far as to change my favorite player from Ike David to Lucas Duda, I don’t see why they should be writing me so often. Related, I have no idea what their emails mean. “Mets Select Gavin and Kevin in Draft!” the last one announced.  I hate when people send emails like that. I mean, they’re obviously fishing for a gift and I’m on a budget.

I told Young Ladrinka about it. He’s a huge Mets fan, so I figured he must have some pull.

“Why am I getting these insane emails?” I asked him.

“Because I signed up with Mets.com and I had to put in an email address to do it,” he explained , dusting his Johan Santana shrine.

“So why didn’t you put in your own email address?” I asked.

“I didn’t want to keep getting spam from them,” he told me.

“Yes,I can see how that would be inconvenient,” I conceded.

“Oh, if they ever send something important, like Get Drafted for the Mets! send it to me, ok?”

“Yes, sir.”

If necessity is the mother of invention, laziness is definitely the father.

Give us his email address and we’ll show him some spam…

Also, this story is adorable in a techie 2012 kind of way.

They are so dang smart and who cares if mama is inconvenienced. I mean, she’s only mama and gets like ZERO emails b/c she isn’t like a human or anything.

I kept getting moshi monster info: about smack down of the century events and such.

Yup, little auggie put my email down. I’m supposed to keep him informed of any new moshi monsters that are introduced.

Because I have nothing to do with my days except keep on eye on his emails (this is what I imagine his Pinterest board on me would show)

I can JUST picture how you said, “Yes, I can see how that would be inconvenient.”
