The agony of trying to unsubscribe | James Veitch

283370 ratings | 12393581 views
It happens to all of us: you unsubscribe from an unwanted marketing email, and a few days later another message from the same company pops up in your inbox. Comedian James Veitch turned this frustration into whimsy when a local supermarket refused to take no for an answer. Hijinks ensued. TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.

Well tell your dear mother that it could have been worse. A friend of mine when he was a child was stuck on a long, boring , "vacation ride" to visit relatives. A journey that he did not particularly want to take. So to mollify him they let him sit in the very back of the family station wagon, which was equipped with a rear window that rolled down. Since the trip was of some several hundred miles little Billy became bored. So to alleviate the problem he furtively opened his father's suitcase and every few miles would toss one of the contents out the window, until there was nothing left but the suitcase , which Billy just as furtively closed.

I got to try this ----------------- I'll find a game with a company, as I too get these damn messages - got one the other day on the phone which I deleted - but I know it will come back again because it something like this "Hurry, special offer, to get major discount on some damn company' and it too counted down to the very end --- and guess what --- it restarted again in 1 month later ------------------- and to be honest, even I'm getting fed up --------------- thanks to this show, I can now look to find the code needed to flood the company I despise off with junk - and forget about it by isolating the messages in a box -------------------- I guess the company will be dancing if I play it right ------------ the plan will be to waste their time and flood the net with it --------- sadly it won't flood the company hard drives as they too can ignore me --------------------- if we all do this action then the law will stop the companies flooding junk advertising messages to us - how many people can this show help wake up to flood companies with unwanted messages?? remember if millions of people does this - then not only will there be a million people isolated - but trillions to auto reply firing at each other - how many hard drive space does the internet have?? - our defence was I really interested? No ---- so stop perstering me ------- but this is how they win by annoying us enough to visit the store --------- there will be big trouble around - but in the end the customers are always right ;-) there's millions of companies, all advertising, and almost all of them we are not interested in ------------ and it will get worst ----------------- if we don't act, we will spend hours of our lives deleting messages -------------- hours which we could have gone on holiday, sleep, work, spend time with families and friends --- but we lose this time by deleting messages ================== you see we only live once, about 20% of it is education, 2% fun time, 55% earning money, 10% traveling around and 2% retirement ------------------------ and that the story of your life
