    Shit that annoys you

    Check out the Logitech Harmony Companion. The top buttons (just below the top row) are all programmable…

    This annoys me. Been a long time user of the Harmony remotes and they nuked the whole product line. Works great for TV, Roku, Denon, and such. Not interested in setting up a smart device like Alexa to replace it. Hoping the remote lasts a while longer before I have to figure something out.

    Oh sunnuva. That was actually a solid remote. GREAT tactile feel. Something that Apple could learn a lot from. I also haaaate the AppleTV remotes. Great product, but maddening remote.

    Not tactile. Some of us like contoured, soft buttons to fondle while we browse or watch.

    Companies that spam the fuck out of you, but then when you unsubscribe say "please allow 3 days/2 weeks/etc for this request to take effect". Like, wtf? It's just a goddam automated switch to flip, it is not like a TPS report must make its way through the bureaucracy and get approved by 5 middle management suckups.

    Yeah - I've found it to be *way* easier to just filter that shit and not deal with unsubscribing...

    Bastards.

    that's usually what I do. But I also like to quickly check my spam folder periodically for emails that aren't spam, and when it fills up too quickly that becomes impossible. So when checking my spam folder this morning, I decided to unsubscribe and got that BS from one site. Also got that from GameStop the other day.

    there is an unsubscribe button within gmail that seems to work much better than the actual link provided by marketing departments. Top left, next to the address the mail came from

    The neighbors behind us yell at their dog and their young kids a lot for doing normal dog / kid things. Like...they'll put the dog out in the yard by itself and after awhile it'll get bored / lonely and start barking. Then they yell at her to stop barking. Pretty much the same with the kids. If that's how you feel about your dog / kids, why have them in the first place?

    Doesn't help that we're at home all the time now thanks to WFH, so we have a front row seat for all the yelling.

    I know you’re not looking for an excuse or rationalization, but that’s typically because the spam campaigns are run on separate systems (usually separate vendors) than their customer database. They feed this shit into a separate pipeline in advance with media and contact lists and it’d be extra work to unwrap them and update the lists, and the law doesn’t make them do that so they don’t do that.

    What’s the word on actually engaging with unsubscribe vs. just blocking the sender? I go back and forth…. Some say hitting unsubscribe is worse and indicates that there’s a live lead on the other end of the email address.
    focus.

    Depends - if you ID as spam and block, the sender's reputation will suffer and big mail operators like Gmail, Outlook.com etc. will start being stricter in how they spam check mail from that sender. So if it's a reputable company (is there any such thing?), blocking rather than unsubscribing hurts them; all you need to do is unsubscribe. For spammers, definitely ID as spam and block.

    Also, there are retailers from which I would like to receive e-mails from, for instance if I order from them, from which I do not want their constant marketing bs. I unsub from them. Black friday is the ultimate test of this. It offers me an opportunity to unsub from the few random ones that I haven't already.

    I get very little spam, perhaps 2-3 a week, and nearly zero marketing crap per month on a gmail account that I've had for 20+ years.

    I only unsubscribe from the ones that I know I signed up for (for ex, I bought shit from them, I never asked to be spammed but they start doing it anyway). Spam emails from an entirely unknown source, I do not unsubscribe from, I just mark as spam.

    Parents that lock their kids in the back yard: POS
    Applies to dogs, too, but I seem to be in the minority on that one.

    Funny. We put up the fence in our backyard to keep our young kids from wandering into harm's way. The neighbors had a business and a busy driveway. And then when we got a dog it was useful for him too. I loved being able to let the kids play on their own with a lower level of supervision. Kids need that. Being able to let the dog out to piss, shit, hang out, bark at the neighbors is priceless. No I don't fucking lock the kids or dog out. Sometimes I forget the dog is out. Or I can't always hear him barking to come in.

    Neighbor renter had her labradoodle tied up outside and then passed out drunk. It was 15F. We called the cops when we noticed the dog was tied up outside at night. She moved out shortly after.

    We just fenced our yard almost a 1/2 acre, not cheap per se. Dog loves it, rarely wants to come inside, and the cold doesn't seem to phase him one bit and it gets cold. Obviously different breeds have different capacities for handling cold but he's not a big furry dog, just a short haired black lab with a bit of husky in him.

    Ya, good call. Not at all what I'm talking about.
