Calling John McCain: Unsubscribe Me, Please
I am a McCain Supporter but don't wish to be contacted until closer to the election. I am a McCain Supporter but I am receiving too many emails. Please only send me newsletters and urgent alerts. I am a McCain Supporter but do not wish to receive email any longer. I am no longer a McCain Supporter and want to be taken off the email list.In other words, you cannot be removed, at least via the web, unless you agree to one of those statements--unless you agree to declare that you either are or were a McCain supporter. You cannot simply unsubscribe. I've tried. Many, many times. Why is it set up this way? If I'm part of some media spam list, perhaps it's to gauge media support for or against McCain. The replies become part of some strategy. Some "think-tank" discussion. Dunno. But, call me crazy, I care. And today, I phoned the Virginia-based press office number listed on all of the releases and got a Rachel Dean. "Do you want to be removed?" she said. Well, yes, but first I wanted an explanation for how they'd acquired my email address and someone to explain the unsubscribe declarations. How about the option to simply unsubscribe? Dean--the person who picks up the phone in the press office, reached at the number listed on the very spam I was calling to ask about--wouldn't talk to me at all on the record and gave me the number to McCain's Colorado regional muckety mucks, Tom Kise. I called and left a message. C'mon. McCain's spam strategy strikes me, dare I say it, as an un-American, arm-twisting use of email-- political cyber-porn meets extortion. Say McCain's name or expect more of the same. Sooooo, I've not checked a box, I'm still getting the spam. It's all sitting in my inbox "junk" bin with the Viagra-esque promotions. McCain may get a few of those himself.
