I usually avoid public political debates, but I can't resist this one. In the past week I have received two emails from Ameri For Congress 2004, and I have no idea how I got on her email list. Whether or not I agree with her views is irrelevant in this case, because I have two serious concerns:
- The email was unsolicited. If I somehow got on a list that she feels is authorized to use, she should specify such in her email.
- The email contains no opt-out instructions.
I'm all for candidates using appropriate media to get their message out, but this is clearly in the spam category and I'm pretty furious.
