How many of you are sick of all the crap-email you get after WPPI?
I can't even count the amount of spam messages they send out from vendors who I never visited and don't ever care about...BUT WHAT REALLY UPSETS ME is that many of them don't even provide opt-out option which is THE LAW! I use email marketing a lot and it's great. I have nothing against it except when companies go out and sell our email addresses like WPPI is doing and then the companies that they are selling them to don't abide by the law.
I've emailed Skip about it and he said they are all required to sign a document that they will abide by the Federal Trade Commisions Can-Spam laws implemented in 2003 but many of them don't so it looks like enforcement is up to us.
If they don't have an opt-out you can file a complaint against these companies here...
Keep it real folks. Use opt-in emails and don't send spam!

I don't feel like I get a TON from WPPI, but I get a lot of other photography or business related (or business credit card) mail. My counter piles up with it really quickly. Email is a much more earth friendly way of doing things. I'm a big recycler, so it's hard for me to just throw it all in the garbage. So really, junk mail creates more (unnecessary) work for me.
I've been SWAMPED by WPPI spam...
It's VERY annoying.
Especially when they don't have an opt-out option.
oh, my bad... read it wrong! You meant email crap. Not mail crap.
I can't believe they don't have an opt-out option. That's not ok.
I bet it's getting sent to my old photography email address.
Glad I didn't go!
I'm gonna close the comments here - please comment on facebook...
