I've noticed a huge increase in the number of unwanted newsletters I receive from companies, with perhaps one detail that might be relevant to me once every 15 issues. I'm old-fashioned enough to think it's the job of the PR to know what the detail is and send it to me separately - because I don't have time to read all the issues of all the newsletters people sign me up for without asking. I usually try to unsubscribe from these things but this is rarely easy; 'if you are not a member of company X, contact person Y for removal'. Sorry, no. I shall mark your newsletter as junk mail instead, and consider that your company may not understand data protection and privacy legislation.

Incidentally, none of this makes me any more likely to write about you...

Yes, I've seen that too - getting spammed with newsletters that are actually written for their customers and potential investors. I suppose that if I wrote about financials, I might want to know what tales they're telling their investors, but the perps are usually such small fry I can't be arsed looking into them.
