    Default SureFire Spam

    Anyone else get a ad from SureFire in their email?

    And I thought consumers weren't a big part of their customer base.

    Is it really Spam? I like the fact that they notify me of current specials.

    Lol, speaking which, I just got an e-mail from SF notifing me of the 6P sale. I signed up for it, and enjoy the occasional message.

    shrap,
    If you do not wish to continue receiving emails from SureFire then you can use the SafeUnsubscribe™ link included in the email they sent you.

    I never received one of these emails, so I don't have anything to gripe about here.

    Can't really be Spam mail if you knowingly signed up for it, right?

    I got one too, and technically it was SPAM for me.

    The only way they got my e-mail address was from a recent CS exchange that didn't go well.

    I have a bit of a hard time being mad when it is actually good SPAM for a change. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon3.gif[/img]

    Just because I bought something from them, doesn't mean that I automatically want to hear about every sale they have. I don't remember signing up for their list.

    And yes, I already have unsubscribed.

    LEDmodMan, that sounds very strange. I would be pissed off, regardless of what company you were dealing with.

    If lots of people bought something - you can expect a lot more email.

    Ah !

    It looks like there's also fault to be blamed on SureFire as well -- my apologies.

    So basically, any time you also "volunteered" your e-mail (i.e. required for C/S or purchases), they automatically put you on the hit-list, too ?

    Now that's not Kosher.

    I agree it's not spam, but I still had a problem with it being filtered into my spam folder. It seems like a good special too if you are looking for a 6P.

    Spam is defined as unsolicited advertising email. Unless they've changed the definition again, i'd have to say that its spam.

    Opinion:

    If one receives Unsolicited Commercial E-mail (UCE) one has received SPAM.

    Even if one has a prior relationship with the business, unles you have REQUESTED them to send you e-mail or at the very least they offered a choice and you chose to let them contact you, it is SPAM.

    Even if it's a great deal, its SPAM.

    I receive commercial e-mail from a number of businesses I've done business with in the past. Most of them I have either checked (or not un-checked, usually) a box in an on-line form, or actually requested them to send me future information. I also receive commercial information from businesses I have not yet done business with.

    This is fine so long as I have REQUESTED that they contact me. However, businesses that decide that they will contact me even if I did not request it get return e-mail from me complaining. It doesn't matter if I've done business with them before.

    If a business I've dealt with in the past, and whom I've told "do not contact" on one or another form contact me, they go on my 'do not patronize' list.

    What is SPAM and why do I object to paying for their advertising? Here, read this: CAUCE FAQ from a group we formed years ago on USENET.
