Worse Than Spam

The Windows Live team isn't fooling anyone by trying to pass promo spam off as a tech support email.Tweet Bite

The only thing worse than SPAM is when the company spamming you, acknowledges within the spam itself, that they aren't supposed to spam you and trys to pass the spam off the as something else.

Today, I received this email from the Windows Live Team.

Worse than Spam

They acknowledge within the email, "your settings do not allow Microsoft to send you promotional information", yet they are emailing me anyway?

Maybe they think that they are fooling someone by disguising it as "contacting you regarding your communication preference settings". As if this makes it non promotional.

But at the end of the day, they sent me this email to promote the changing of my settings so that they could send me promotions. Lame attempt.

I don't actually use this account for anything real. I use Gmail. But I guess it fits, since I only use this account to fill out forms that I think I might get spammed from. And I did.
