I’ve been hitting the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of many of the emails I receive.
It’s thanks, in part, to Google’s new(ish) mail interface, Inbox, which sorts your incoming emails into “Promotional”, “Updates”, and “Purchases”. It’s pretty cool. And it’s highlighted for me how much junk I get. It’s not spam, I did sign up for most of these reminders, but it’s just gotten to be too much.
So I’m unsubscribing right and left. Trying to trim down on the amount of emails I receive, and just delete without more than a glance, if that.
Less is more.
