Copy of one of my Zero Room posts

This pissed me off so badly that I wanted to post it on both this blog and The Zero Room. I need a coffee...

On being in 530 different address books

Okay, I just signed on to one of my Yahoo accounts, and found there, waiting for me, more than a dozen e-mails from people I have never heard of, let alone given my e-mail address to. When I went to reply to one of these, to ask to be taken from their address book, I found hundreds of e-mail addresses this particular message had been sent to. So, I took a deep breath, and carefully copied and pasted, into 6 different e-mails, five hundred and thirty (530) e-mail addresses. It took 6 different e-mails because Yahoo isn't equipped to send one e-mail to, let me just say this again because it is such a jolly fun number, five hundred and thirty (530) addresses at once.

I am furious, and I know damn well how my name/e-mail addy got on this freaking list in the first place, but I will be the bigger person and once again refuse to name names publicly. If the person who crammed my Inbox chooses to name themselves on my blog, that's their own flippin' problem ;)

And then I printed out 24 pages of their e-mail addresses, so that I may know their faces should they arrive uninvited again...

It strikes me what an "instant" world we now live in. Someone can copy and paste my e-mail address to literally hundreds of other people, without my permission, without my awareness, and I have to deal with it as best I can. Needless to say, I will report each and every message I get from any of these--oooh here's that fun number again!-- five hundred and thirty (530) people as unsolicited spam. And this is different from my Blogger e-mail address by virtue of being a private e-mail address. Things like being added to address books because of being a public blogger--fine, that I can handle. These 530 people, however--well, that's a different matter entirely.
