Seriously.

If anyone has ever signed up for a free account at Fool.com, or a trial account to access their community discussion board – you’ll know what I’m talking about.

When I first signed up, I got weekly newsletter email, which is pretty standard… but during the course of the trial period, I increasingly get more and more emails about the crazy benefits of the discussion board. Who knew after the 30 day trial period, I’ll get even more emails!

Subject: We want you back!

Imagine that, times infinity.

The contents at Fool.com are decent enough, but they need to tone down on their opt-in spam. I just got another email today, telling me they want me back—six months later!

It’s like a crazy ex-boyfriend that won’t leave you alone.
