Yesterday, exactly three weeks later, I received only 15 spam emails. So far the unsubscribe tactic is working.
I hadn't been unsubscribing from emails over the last couple of years for a number of reasons:
I didn't want to spend the time required to click around and do it.
I didn't want to open the spammers' emails and risk them thinking I actually read it.
I was nervous the link would take me to a virus-infecting website.
I didn't want the spammers to sell my email address to other spammers as an "active email account".
Hopefully I was wrong on all accounts, because 15 is a lot better than 92 (or 125 on some days). I will continue to unsubscribe to every spam email I can. I will also continue to practice non-spam emailing. And of course I'll let you know if I have any updates worth sharing!
