    Which is worse? Bacn or Spam? If you’re lucky, the company will go out of business (which is a heck of a thing to hope for this day and age) and stop offending people with their carnival barking — and pig promo’s (PP)!

    Some day, certain companies may come to the realization that CUSTOMERS — the people who actually bother to come in to their stores, visit their web sites, or call on the phone — are the ones who are actually interested in the product(s) or service(s). These companies only make it worse when they try to sell their stuff all over again after the sale!

    All too often, spam/bacn or even plain old junk mail just reaffirms the horrible deal you just got. And almost without fail, these companies wait until like a month later to inform you that you can “now get an even better deal”. Or worse! They tell you that you CAN’T have that better deal because you’re already a CUSTOMER!!!

    Hello, Comcast, AT&T, Verizon?! (FYI: Those guys always seem to make the top of the list in worst customer service which isn’t all that surprising when you realize all the spam/bacn and junk mail they make their customers pay for.) HELLO?! CELL PHONE INDUSTRY?!!!

    When you think about it, spam/bacn is really just more advertising. And it’s really kind of insane when you look at what is being advertised. But nothing is going to change as long as there are potential consumers (sheep) and free technology like mass email to wow them with. So, welcome to the new digital dumping ground. At least, it’s not killing any more trees other than what it takes to power up those email devices (or require larger land fills when those devices are discarded).

    It’s even worse when you’re forced into this circle by a retarded Chilean that has a name vaguely similar to yours, and signs up into crap with YOUR email in sites that do not require email verification. Arrrrghhh the horror.

    I don’t open it. Just let it be. My inbox has more Bacn than messages I would read.

    one other word: multiple -and disposable- email accounts.

    I see what’s there each time I check my mail… and I feels good to select all and X it.
