Ziff Davis: Spammers Extraordinaire

Ziff Davis is spamming me. A lot, in fact, to the tune of several messages per day.

I have, for several years, subscribed to various Ziff Davis e-mail newsletters, including the CIO Insight and eWeek publications. I have tried many times, now – approximately 20 – in the last three months to unsubscribe, however, since I am no longer working in information technology. My requests – made both through their unsubscribe forms and by e-mail – have been ignored.

Therefore, as I promised Ziff Davis repeatedly in a series of warnings, their failure to comply with the law and basic decency is being published. Ziff Davis spams people. Ziff Davis does not honor unsubscribe requests or reply to user e-mails. Instead, Ziff Davis sends enormous amounts of Unsolicited Commercial E-mail (UCE, or spam) to its former subscribers.

Do not subscribe to Ziff Davis publications unless you want them forever – you will never be able to unsubscribe!
