Got an Evite this morning, and it contains fine print claiming that it "is a transactional email, not marketing or promotional, which is why it does not contain an unsubscribe link...."
This is nonsense. Evites are spam and they know it. It's unsolicited commercial e-mail; they're not running a charity. And you can't opt out; you can only block individuals IF you have an account.
I dream of having enough free time to run my own mail server, so I can configure it to reject all Evites.
When Evite was still a young company, I actually wrote to them to say "this is inappropriate; please block my e-mail address from receiving mail from your service." And they did! That's what responsible participation in the internet looks like.
Then the block stopped working, and they stopped responding to my messages about it.
