“Sorry PR people: you’re blocked”

Detta är rubriken till ett av Chris Anderssons brillianta inlägg i hans blogg. Chris är som bekant chefredaktör för Wired Magazine i USA, och är bevisligen så in i helvete trött på att alla pr-konsulter och liknande som urskiljningslöst förser honom med ointressanta meddelanden per e-post.

“I get more than 300 emails a day and my problem isn’t spam (Cloudmark Desktop solves that nicely), it’s PR people. Lazy flacks send press releases to the Editor in Chief of Wired because they can’t be bothered to find out who on my staff, if anyone, might actually be interested in what they’re pitching. Fact: I am an actual person, not a team assigned to read press releases and distribute them to the right editors and writers (that’s editor@wired.com).” skriver han.

Chris säger att han bara vill ha två typer av e-post: 1) de från människor han känner 2) från människor som tagit sig tid att ta reda på vad han är intresserad av och skicka ett meddelande som rör detta intresse.

Alla andra meddelanden går rätt ner i papperskorgen, eller adderas till hans egna spam-listor. Nedan finner ni resultatet av hans “svarta lista” efter endast 30 dagar. Chris skriver att de som finns på listan kommer aldrig tas bort från den.

Everything else gets banned on first abuse. The following is just the last month’s list of people and companies who have been added to my Outlook blocked list. All of them have sent me something inappropriate at some point in the past 30 days. Many of them sent press releases; others just added me to a distribution list without asking. If their address gets harvested by spammers by being published here, so be it–turnabout is fair play.

“There is no getting off this list. If you’re on it and have something appropriate to say to me, use a different email address.”
