So I've seen the commercials for Touch Of Modern and thought I'd check it out. After just a moment the pop-up box wants to know my email to continue, or so it looks. When I place the cursor in the box google autofills, and as I'm looking at this I can read that I can continue WITHOUT it..... TOO LATE, without completing the box it captured the email and sends me stuff twice a day! First one came just after I exited the pop up without even completing it.

Nordstrom’s. Signed up to get alerts about their semi-annual sales as I buy their slacks and some shirts for work. Holy hell do they ever feel the need to email you about every trendy (read stupid) new arrival to the men’s line. Just what I need, track pants with the crotch down at my knees.
Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.
Damn them for making me covet more watches.
Eeewwww, don't touch it!
Here, poke at it with this stick.

Pretty much anything political related. It's clear they sold my info and it makes me mad that I ever donated to a few of them. I will certainly never make that mistake again.
I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious.
I too made the mistake of checking out T.O.M. Kinda like Sharper Image or Hammacher Schlemmer, maybe something interesting. Turns out no, mostly overpriced dust collectors, silliness and stuff you'd be ashamed to have. But the emails , just stop.
Set the controls for the heart of the Sun.
Even after I've repeatedly told them to take me off their lists.

coffee, and sarcasm.
Unless things have changed, don't sign up for Front Sight's (the firearms trainer in NV) e-mail list.
Bought the deal iWatch at Macy's and instantly get hit with twice a day spam mail, same for Jaques Penne', unsubscribed on both and it's been spam free since.
Good companies know that continuing to hit people with emails they don't want runs off future customers, I don't blame either for hitting me with spam, since it's the holidays I knew it was coming, but they did stop when asked.
You need a backup email for online purchases and inquiry if they spam you who cares.

AOPA, aircraft owners and pilots association. They are relentless.

I got tired of their pontificating. Dropped membership, told them to take me off their mailing list, have not been bothered once. No email, no US Postal mail, no phone calls, no nothing. Life is Good.
A mind is a terrible thing.
Everybody mass emails today. It's a standard business practice. What's annoying are the unsubscribe requests that go un-honored.
My solution is one of two: Use a disposable email address (e.g., mailinator.com) or set up a free email account (Google, Yahoo, etc.) used only for online shopping and research. I have a private email that I give out only to friends, family and close acquaintances. It's the one I monitor.

Fuckers at Dollar Rent a Car need to be on this list.
Bought a watch through Crown and Caliber. They seem to be a good outfit otherwise but the problem with them is pop-ups not e-mails. They are all over my screen now.

I did the same thing... about 15 years ago. About 6 months ago the junk mail started again.
Harbor Freight and any cigar vendor you ever purchase from.
I'm not completely useless. I can be used as a bad example.

Bravo Concealment and Grunt Style are my two worst offenders.
Daily emails. Sometimes multiple times per day.
Great gear, but enough already.
We use a "dump email" address for this purpose and seldom check it.

Dang, that was a show-stopper.
