I recieve a lot of subscription email, that I chose to recieve. My email address just recently changed so I unsubscribed from that one and resbuscribed with another. I think the real issue lies when you cannot get rid of something that you would like to. More often than not, we chose to subscribe to something and we don't want it later. If one person does not want to recieve something, it should not effect the sender or any other recipient accept that the sender would no longer be sending the the unsubscribed recipient. There are also a lot of good newsletters and automated emails that go out. I personally subscribe to many. As I mentioned previously, the real problem lies where you cannot get rid of something you chose to. Somehow, there seem to be loopholes where people can continue to send unwanted things. Albeit, there are emails (especially pornography emails) that are cleary just sent and many times unwanted but this Act if anything at all not blanket all email subscriptions, or any that promote anything or that contain websites. It seems that the word commercial is used too freely with in the act. If I recommend something or send a website to someone, I am not advertising, I am simply sending or forwarding my opinion.
