Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Last week, we sent out a flyer, our second in two years, to the 14,000 or so subscribers of our daily email news update.

This was by way of an experiment - email ads are a useful income generator, but, at the same time, we really don't want to piss off our readers.

Judging from the unsubscribes, we had about 20 complaints, all on spamming grounds.

Except for this one.

I bind and rebuke 'demons' in the name and through the Blood of Jesus Christ.

I no longer wish to recieve anything from anyone with 'demons' affixed to their address!

I wrote to unsubscribe....and I am letting you know as well...please send nothing else to me. ®
