Yesterday Jan decided he’d heard enough from OnlineItalianClub.com.
“Too much post and anything of use is not free, totally mislead when I joined.”
Jan’s clearly a bright guy and has understood our game. Spam everyone and make as much cash as possible!
He also figured out that, at the bottom of each e-mail we send, there’s a cunningly concealed unsubscribe link (on the last line, where it says ‘Unsubscribe’.)
Scroll down now and click it, see what happens.
You go to a page which says:
You are subscribed to the following lists:
|Subscribed||Unsubscribed||List Name||Description||Signup Date|
|italianclub||Online Italian Club contact list||09-10-2013 05:11 AM|
If, like Jan, you’d rather not hear from us again, click the ‘Unsubscribed’ radio button, and then the big green button with ‘Save my Subscriber Settings’
The next screen says:
|You have been unsubscribed from the selected list(s).
|Please help us improve by letting us know why you have unsubscribed.Comments:|
That’s your chance to write something kind like
‘I don’t have time to learn Italian any more, but thanks for everything!’
Or if you prefer, you could do like Jan and point out that everything on the site is useless except the things that are for sale, and that you’ve been totally mislead.
And that will be the end of that. No more emails from me.
You won’t get the rest of the B1 listening series. But then it’s useless anyway.
Or the 10 or so biographies of famous Italian scientists and historical figures that we recorded this (Sunday) morning and which we’ll be publishing at a rate of two or three a week for the rest of the month.
But who cares?
Or the 39 recordings in the up-coming series of ‘grammar listenings’ (all the pronouns, all the tense forms, one text for each) which will be recorded next week and published throughout the autumn.
Sounds like a waste of time, don’t you think?
Better to have a nice empty in-box and avoid the never-ending offers for e-books, online lessons and so on which partly pay for the cost of running this site.
So seriously, don’t want any more e-mails from us?
Just scroll down the page now and click the unsubscribe link. No hard feelings!
Jan’s comment got me incavolato. Sorry. Normal service resumes tomorrow with the next in the series of B1 listenings.
Last chance for the two new e-books at the special launch price – ends in a few hours!
