A software developer’s musings on software development

CharlotteGigs.net

Warning: I wrote this blog post in 2009. That is a long time ago, especially on the internet. My opinions may have changed since then. Technological progress may have made this information completely obsolete. Proceed with caution.

CharlotteGigs.net is a mostly worthless spam machine that masquerades as a local job board. I signed up for their site when I was looking for a job, and now I can’t seem to get their junk mail to stop coming. I have clicked the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of their spam several times. I continue to get this message upon doing so:

Protip: If you have to show a message like this to your users, you are doing something wrong. Come on guys, ten days?? What are you doing, writing the request on a notarized letter and mailing it to Nigeria?
