Comments from the haters: Facebook Edition

More shenanigans from back when I was on Fakebook:

Back in 2018, I ran with a different email service provider. Since I send out emails every day, it helps if the service provider can hold up their end of the deal. Oddly enough, lots of them cannot.

And so... lots and lots of my email subscribers — who never got emails from me even tho they signed up to my email list — started suddenly getting emails from me.

See, I used to run sveral different email lists. And… in 2018, I decided to just have one big list so everyone got the same emails from me every day.

Anyway, turns out a lot of people from several of my other email lists got merged into my main email list but… there were also a bunch of people who never got merged into the new list, so… I merged them.

And that’s when someone got all bent out of shape about getting an email from me after lo these many months of what he perceived to be radio silence.

Now theoretically, if I merged him from an old list into my main email list, this should never have happened if he never clicked on the confirmation link when he signed up.

But… maybe I messed up somehow by pushing the wrong button and this is all my fault. It's possible. I've screwed up stuff like this before.

Either way, this one slipped through the goalie.

What’s funny about all this is that I set up roadblocks and boarder security to keep this from happening… like, making you tick a checkbox acknowledging that you are signing up to an email list and that you’ll receive promotional stuff from me.

I also send out confirmation emails so the unserious folks don't get onto my email list.

It's not exactly a wall, but I also don't have an "open boarders" policy either.

Anyway, never let it be said that I am never diplomatic (see screenshot below):

Another comment from another hater

Note the timestamp—this hater decided to complain about an email he'd received a year ago. The link for that email had understandably expired cuz I ain't running a charity list.

The funny thing is the email he screen-capped is an email he received from me about a year ago (I had to dig through my email broadcast system to find out—the email link is dead because it points to a page that no longer exists). But, his Facebook post was time stamped 18 hours ago when it popped up in my feed.

Anyway, the point of all this is there are some people who just don’t belong on this email list and it’s not because they’re Facebook drama queens who desperately need attention. Although, there definitely are some of those.

No… there are lots of totally legit reasons why someone might not do business with me.

For example: maybe they don’t want life insurance. That’s a great reason.

Maybe they already have boatloads of money and are just living the dream. Maybe they are the one person who figured out that “one weird secret” to making mad moolah from home, sitting in their underwear, at the kitchen table.

Maybe they don't place a high value on their income and savings and so they don't see the point of life insurance. That might sound cray cray to you but... there are a shit-ton of people in this world who couldn't give a rat's ass about it or what happens to them, let alone their ability to produce something valuable.

And maybe... they take too long to open their confirmation email and click on the confirmation link inside.

Whatever the case, I am not a good fit for some people… maybe a lot of people. And, if for whatever reason they find it difficult to click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every – single – email – (which does work, and has always worked, if you want to try it out) and I can help them get off this email list, then… I will help them get off the list.

I mean. Really. No one wants to be hounded with offers they don’t want.

Anyway, enough about the poor and unfortunate Mr. Floyd. Let’s talk about the rich and prosperous Mr. Butch.

If you are not on this email list by accident, and…

… assuming you DO actually want to be here, and… you do not yet have a savings plan, or… if you HAVE a savings plan but you’re not satisfied with how it’s working (or not working, as the case may be), then…

Wait. What? You're not on my email list? Well.. go join the email list, Bucko!
