I am getting way to much email. Some of the email I receive is from lists that I subscribed to but cannot unsubscribe from. Oh I try. Some sites claim to unsubscribe me but don’t. Some sites won’t unsubscribe me because I can’t give them the right email address. All of this adds up to way to much email.
Enter my gmail filter. For each unwanted email stream, I click a few buttons and voila! all new emails are delivered to my trash can.
Oh sure – I do feel guilty that I’m wasting precious computing resources but I figure at some point google will get smart and start blocking mail from sites that are filtered in this manner.
At any rate, I am looking forward to less noise in my inbox.
