Some companies just don’t get it

As normal, I opt not to recieve random adverts from companies – in this case, I was somewhat surprised to recieve a spam email from non other than Microsoft, pointing out that I was opted out and offering me the chance to reverse my decision.

As part of a routine data inspection we have noticed you have elected to stop receiving communications from Microsoft.

As Microsoft launches exciting new solutions and initiatives, there’s no better time to register for information that will give your business a critical technological advantage. We invite you to consider receiving communications from us again.

Opting out of recieving emails means that I don’t want to recieve adverts – not even adverts for the opt-in of the service I’ve already opted out of. Needless to say, the email has been tagged as spam.
