With the risk of becoming massively unpopular here on Book Blogs I'd like to take a moment to rant a little.
I'm really really annoyed about the constant spam in my inbox. There seems to be an idea here that it's totally legit to constantly send out these mass mails to everybody you've befriended, whether or not you know them the slightest or have ever talked to them. Content? Complete and utter look-at-me, look-at-what-i-have-here please-like-my-stuff, please-click-here-and-here-and-here etc. Basically - PR. Annoying PR. It's like a bad newsletter I didn't sign up for and there aren't any ways of getting rid of with - well without unfriending and blocking messages. Which I'll be frank, I have done in the past. Because seriously. I missed on an important email in that inbox because it was drowned in a string of spam.
Because that's another thing. To all you newcomers and oldies - there are two different ways to reply to an email. Reply-to-All or Reply-to-Sender. Consider this the next time you hit reply. Is your reply really so vital that all the unfortunate souls on that mailing lists must see it?
I'm not pointing any fingers here, but I think something should be done.
So in conclusion, I'm a ranty person and I believe there are people out there who should stop abusing the mailing system of this community. All attention is not good attention. There are plenty of groups and forum posts where you can showcase all your stuff.
Thanks for listening reading.
