    And as usual they keep spamming my mailbox.

    Folks, don't buy anything from them. Even if you set your preferences
    for no mail, you'll get spam more than once a week FOR LIFE.

    Darn, I hope not. I just picked up Videodrome and Existenz for $6
    each, minus the 20% with that code, and free shipping.

    We'll see if I pay for it in future spam hassles! :-o

    EVERY purchase you make from them will be tied to that stupid cash back
    bait and switch crap they ALWAYS offer, even if you opt out. You may
    even receive snail mail spam. I have been getting "checks" for $10 that
    have join stipulations for cashing it. And they wonder why angered folks
    find their way into office buildings, looking for company heads.

    It would be awfully expensive for them to snail mail spam me here in
    Australia... :)

    I forgot about that -- they're snail-mail spamming me, too, with that
    "Great Fun" nonsense you allude to.

    I don't know....I'm a frequent DDD shopper, and I get about one email
    every two weeks, and have never received snail mail from them. But
    then again, I get similar email from lots of merchants I deal with.

    Geez....is hitting the delete button on an unwanted piece of email
    really that annoying? Frankly, I'll take the savings and hit the
    delete button later.

    I hate spam with a passion. I've had his e-mail address for 12 years,
    so I'm on every kook mailing list there is. That said, hey, at least
    I can get cheap DVDs out of it, instead of just a headache. I don't even
    remember seeing any DDDVD spam-- maybe my filter is taking care of it?

    As for snail mail spam... well, there's a trashcan right by my mailbox.
    If I don't want your mail, it never even makes it in my house.

    Is that a serious question?

    If you don't know by now what's wrong with spam, it's pointless to
    try to tell you.

    While you may be a customer and may have chosen to receive their
    emails, I am not, and I did not. (Even when I was a customer, I had
    checked "no mail" in my preferences, but they ignored that, as they
    ignore emails to customer service.)

    That's odd, I am a customer, I select yes mail, and I don't get any.

    ....Keep your personal life out of this. ;)

    Seriously, how paranoid do you have to *be* to confuse a website's own
    mailing list, with *real* spam from sites that weaselly sell out your
    address to shadowy bidders?
    At least, whether or not I click "yes mail" (which, in DDDVD's case, I
    do), it's a site I'll actually frequent some other time in my life, and
    not trying to sell me Viagra supplements.
    In snail-mail equivalent, yes, I can do without eight Land's End
    catalogs a year just because I bought a sweater from them once, but
    then, I don't have to throw e-mails in the recycling bin.

    (Oh, and there's always that little "Privacy Policy" pop-up you can
    check, just in case you're still worried about black helicopters
    circling your inbox.)

    Really? I used to be quite a heavy customer of theirs about 3 years back,
    and the only emails I've ever gotten were related to my orders.

    So...you're getting email from them, but have never bought anything from
    them? That would be spam then.

    If you did buy something from them, checked the "don't mail me"
    checkbox(es), and still get email from them, then that's not quite spam,
    but still just annoying. USUSALLY, a quick email to their sales or
    support alias saying something to the effect of "I'm a customer who
    doesn't want to get ads. Stop mailing me, or you lose a customer" results
    in a quick apology and no more email. If not, I've taken my business else
    where. If you want to be nasty, write a polite snail-mail letter to the
    CEO, and attach adequately blacked out receipt or two from your purchases
    from a competitor, just to show them how much business they actually lost.

    so that gives you the right to spam everyone in the world?
    i don't know what's your fucking problem. you got a few unwanted email
    from some company, and that's enough for you to take it out on the whole
    world. all you have to do is delete it.

    email like these don't cause spam problem, the real spam ss generated by
    infected computers, it sends hundres of unwanted email to your mailbox,
    and it sends indentical messages again and again, that's the real problem.
    you are barking up the wrong tree.
    i'd rather read email of legitimate offers than your pointless spam.

    Why are you so goddamned stupid that you re-quote the entire thing?

    This is Usenet, idiot. Anyone can take a dump anywhere, and it can be
    as stinky as they want it to be. I had beans last night, and I fart in
    your direct direction!

    All you have to do is grow the **** up.

    >email like these don't cause spam problem,


    I don't think you know enough about the world to act as if you know
    what is going on on the Internet.

    > the real spam ss generated by

    No, idiot... that would be classified as a virus.

    >and it sends indentical messages again and again, that's the real problem.


    Your fucked up perception is the real problem. Get over it.

    >you are barking up the wrong tree.


    You don't even know where the tree is rooted at, so you cannot expound
    on who may or may not be barking up one, much less whether it is the
    right one or not.

    >i'd rather read email of legitimate offers than your pointless spam.


    Do you even know what a filter is, idiot?
