In many cases, unsoliticed explicit, pornographic or nuisance emails have had trailers claiming that you could stop receiving these emails by replying to the offending email. In many cases, when attempting this, the email address has been changed and the opt-out goes nowhere, or in a few cases, it only served to increase the offending emails. In one email, I was told to open the offending attachment in order to find the email address in order to opt-out. Please, I'm a senior citizen and I am interested in books and crocheting....I am not interested in Brittney Spears doing it with animals... or increasing the size of my penis (if I had one) or increasing my sex drive....or re-financing my house. I am offended by email that has misleading subject lines and insults my intelligence and disrespects my moral choices in life. I have been forced to close out my last email address because in one day I had over 200 emails and all but 14 of them were unsolicited spam. Help!
