A Public Service Announcement for MySpace: Please make sure your email unsubscribe links are working.
I wouldn’t normally waste my time on such a boring post, but I’ve got a minute to kill, so hey. MySpace occasionally sends email notifications alerting me every time someone sends me a message. (But the email NEVER tells you what the message is, which is incredibly annoying. 99% of the time, it’s just a band using software to boost its friend base. I no longer bother reading messages.)
So today, fed up, I finally decided to turn notifications off, and clicked on the link in the email titled:
“To turn off notifications, update your account settings.“
However, doing so takes you to a page that says:
Oops! Something went wrong…
Sorry but something may have gone wrong with our system or the page you have requested is currently not available. If you have mistyped the address then please try again. Otherwise go explore everything else we’ve got — music, movies, games, celebrities, and more.
I guess something has “gone wrong with their system.” Those wily coyotes will stop at nothing to make sure they can continue emailing you, ay? But you can’t be too hard on poor ol’ MySpace…steering a ship with a skeleton crew can’t be an easy task. Ah well.
So, when was the last time YOU visited YOUR MySpace profile? Or any, for that matter?
