What would you do if they ignored your flame?  You could block microsoft,
but that would do you no good, you wouldn't receive the things you did
receive.  No more [email protected]  That would be an option, but again,
you're already a customer, so you would want to receive certain information.

I'll stick to my opinion the vendor should provide a mechanism to enable
differentiation between different types of information they would like to do
mailings for.

The commercial part I also forgot, thanks ;).  But it does not change my
statement I think.
