    I found my self subscribed to a vaguely legitimate mailing list.

    They have an unsubscribe link, I followed it and also contacted them several times but they will not respond nor will they remove my email from their list.


    Want your opinions, should I do something nasty to them/their site, or should I just continue to ignore??

    Just filter the mail to your trash box, they have enough issues if they can't respond or it won't unsubscribe for you. Move on

    There are tons of stupid companies like this. No matter how many times you click that damn unsubscribe button, you'll still get their emails.

    XRumer that damn site!

    Just hit the damn "Spam" button and move on, I am sure you have got better things to do than sending thousands of shitty links to them or anything else that requires investment of time and resources. :)

    Lol. Your probably right.
    Was thinking of writing a little php script to send them few hundred thousand mails to their inbox:)
    Probably a bad idea though, maybe ill just block them.

    Just forward all their emails to your spam box. It's probably not worth the time to mess with them over some unsolicited emails.

    If you live in the U.S., you could try suing them. I did it twice just for the experience, settled for $400 and $380 through small claims.

    I'm actually having the exact same problem. Someone keeps emailing me from support@yeah.net about some video editing service which I've never subscribed to or anything. They are using some spam software because it's coming through one of my email address from a contact support form on my site. It's driving me crazy because they say to unsubscribe email Support@yeah.net which I'm sure is BS, but I've done so anyways and still receive emails once a week if not more.
