Hah! I instantly unsubscribed from all material from the community and have no intention on using this "Community" a phone won't entice me to go back!

I find it rather dull that you can't leave the community through a click of a button, while you can  PM a mod, that shouldn't be the case for online forums, simple and fast is all people need.

christherider: So apparently I'm a member of the Vodafone forum - I probably signed up a LONG time ago back when I used Vodafone. I haven't used Voda for phone or internet in at least 5 years. Today I got an email notifying of a private message on the forum - the entire contents of the PM were included in the email. It was a Vodafone promotion, something to do with winning a new Galaxy phone.

The email contained no unsubscribe feature - Vodafone are leveraging the private message platform to spam its users. This is contrary to the anti-spam provisions in legislation, and as such I left a complaint with the Department of Internal Affairs anti-spam team.

Vodafone, get it together. No one wants to receive your annoying spam. You're breaking the law by not including an unsubscribe button.


5 years without even a single message in your inbox and you consider this spam? People subcribe to a service or community because they generally are interested in what's on offer, whether it be information or products of support. You complain because you have received a message relating to a s6 giveaway. Yes I got one too! I bet you would be super fast to complain if you never heard from anyone?

I got two emails. Neither interested me so I just moved on and carried on with my life.

I removed a couple of replies that were making fun of the OP instead of discussing the topic.

You either discuss the topic or don't - making fun on someone is not welcome here.
