Reduction in the legal spam.

The majority of the legal spam that I’ve been recieving has been from major marketing mailing list managers. Unsubscribing from each company’s email campaign is a futile game of whack-a-mole. So I directed my efforts on the source of the email. Here are the steps I’ve used to get a perma-block on my email address for now and future email campaigns. I’ll be glad to add more if you know of any, hit me up in the comments.

Submit and wait for a confirmation. I had a response in about six hours with a positive acknowledgement.
