This is a more of a rant than news, but I am sick and tired of Constant Contact.
It’s not that they seemingly encourage customers to add an email address without first obtaining permission–other email marketing companies are guilty of the same–it’s that they make me, the victim, jump through hoops to opt-out.
Here’s the Constant Contact opt-out form:
They, laughingly, call this “SafeUnsubscribe.” Safe, for who, the spammer? For me, I have to double check the email the spam was sent to, then enter it again in the box. After that, I don’t even get an option to report the spammer–something that Mailchimp gets kudos points for making an easy option.
