Here’s a good business practice: if people opt out of your crappy emails, send them the occasional email attempting to make them regret their decision.

Isn’t that reassuring? They’re just making sure I know about all the promotional information and survey invitations that I’m missing out on. This adds a little more to my growing disillusionment with Microsoft.
