Do you guys remember the post I did on how many emails it took before you considered it spam? That post included a poll which showed that for most people it took at least three emails. For others it was four and for some as low as two. The problem is that good or bad lists will not change unless we do something about it which is what this post is all about.
Let’s face it, the reason so many people use lists and those really annoying popups is because they work. Yep, those popups and all those crappy emails you keep getting manage to generate sales for those people using them. Still, the fact that they work does not make them any less annoying The question is can we do something to stop people from using them? Well that all depends on whether or not you’re willing to make a stand and do something about it.

How Making A Stand Can Change The Online World
Considering how being a member of these annoying lists are helping to propagate them the solution is to simply unsubscribe from them. Too many people are willing to put up with them thinking that perhaps something of value will come from it. And then when they do buy something it usually results in disappointment. And still they do not unsubscribe and so these lists continue to grow.
If more people unsubscribed leaving a note as to why they did so then I’m sure the quality of lists will improve. But the only way it will happen is if a lot of people make a stand and the only way that will happen is if we get together and get the message across. Write your own post telling your readers why they should do something about the lists they’re a member of. Tweet or stumbling this post will also get the word out. The thing is we all need to get off the fence and do something about it.
The same goes for those annoying popups. If bloggers weren’t making something from it they would have to stop annoying us with them wouldn’t they? Unfortunately that won’t happen unless they see people turning away from their blog because of it. So, the next time you’re reading a post and one of those popups appear, don’t get sucked in by it’s promises, LEAVE! That’s right, forget about reading the rest of the post, just leave. Don’t read the post, don’t leave a comment and certainly don’t click on any link in that stupid popup! Just get the hell out of there and make a stand for the kind of online world you want to be a part of.
Honestly, it’s only when these sort of tactics stop working that those using them will change the way they do business. Suddenly their emails will contain less junk and instead of using those crappy popups they would using something less intrusive like the Covert Messenger plugin, that you say pop up there on the right.
So, what do you think guys? Are you with me?
