Sorry - opt in is where they've asked for your mail. Unless I've misunderstood, they didn't ask for it, right? You're sending them unsolicited advertising, right? That's not opt-in.

You quite clearly have misunderstood the very thing you posted.

Let me enlighten you on the meaning of the word "AND". When AND appears in a sentence, then both phrases of the sentence must be true in order for the sentence to be true.

Period. End of debate.

It doesn't matter that you want people to know about your business.
It doesn't matter that you haven't thought of better ways to do it.
It doesn't matter that this is easier for you.

You are not owed a living on the internet.

Yeah. It doesn't matter. To you. It does matter. To me.

What matters to me trumps what matters to you, in all circumstances, when it is me that is making the decision.

Once again. End of debate.

I am tired of being a "nice guy" and trying to follow rules and avoid pissing people off while everyone around me is eating my lunch by doing just that. My social conscience is not merely tired, it is exhausted, and I have decided to throw it out. Forever.

From now on, Me first, regardless of what it costs anyone else.

Oh. By the way. Ploink.
