Can’t Unsubscribe from Spam? Me Too!

I don’t mind being put on somebody’s email list, considering of course that I actually gave them my email address to begin with. But I also would like the opportunity to unsubscribe to that list at my convenience. I don’t want to keep picking on GoDaddy, because I really have no beef with them other than my really really bad hosting experiencewith them several months back.

But today I got a Valentine’s greeting from GoDaddy (how sweet of them) in my mail box. I can use my cloudmark toolbar to mark it as spam, but I know that I signed up with GoDaddy so I’ll do the polite thing and unsubscribe through their own system.

You are currently subscribed as: [email protected].

If you do not wish to receive our special notices, please unsubscribe here.

So I click that, and guess what happens? I get this:

The email address “[email protected]” was not found in any of our lists.

Try going to the “Update Customer Information” area located under “My Account” to change your account settings.

But I don’t have a GoDaddy account! So I guess this means I’m stuck on their list with no way to remove myself. Oh, wait… I go back to the email and find this:

…unsubscribe here, or mail us a written request to the attention of: GoDaddy.com Customer Contact Manager, 14455 N. Hayden Rd, Ste. 219, Scottsdale, AZ 85260.

It makes we wonder if their system deliberately won’t allow me to unsubscribe.

GoDaddy, we broke up a long time ago… now you’re just stalking!
