Many of you have probably read some posts on hate mail we blogfolk receive. It can be pretty special stuff. I get something like that with a twist: e-mail unsubscribe mail.
At my home blog, OpenLeft.com, where I write and organize campaigns around LGBT and broader progressive issues, we have our e-mail list, OpenLeft Action, which we use for opportunities to make progressive dents around the country. Our subscribers will tell you we e-mail them probably one quarter as much as other progressive organizations. That's because we know what it's like to get a deluge of e-mail, and so we only take action and contact them when we see a really key opportunity to make a difference (you can sign up for OpenLeft's action alerts).
Nonetheless, like any organization, folks want to unsubscribe, which is understandable. For my own interest and to figure out how we can be a better political action organization, I always read through the unsubscribe comments.
About 80-85% of them are because folks receive too much e-mail in their inbox overall, but some of them are pretty far out there. So today, I present you with the best (or worst, depending on your point of view) I've found on LGBT action alerts we've sent out. Even better, vote for your favorite in the extended entry.
Enjoy. Have a good rest of the weekend.
LGBT IS A CROCK OF SHIT. THERE'S NO NEED TO BE MEAN TO ANYONE, HOWEVER SUCH A SMALL MINORITY DEMANDING SPECIAL TREATMENT IS ABSURD. NORMAL PEOPLE ARE FIRST COMMANDMENT PEOPLE, OTHERS DO NOT DESERVE ANY EXTRAORDINARY SPECIAL CONSIDERATION OTHER THAN TO LIVE THEIR LIVES AS THEY SEE FIT
canceling b/c your website is nothing but a false-flag operation by secretly self-loathing, homosexual republicans.
Never heard of you guys, and frankly, gay rights ranks at 2057th place behind global warming, energy sustainability, the economy, the national debt load, education, affordable housing and helping the Albatross population from extinction.
I do not support your life style. If every one was like you the human race would cease. Think about that.
Putting LGBT issue into the spotlight will destroy Obama's chances at a 2nd term. Please stop.
This country isn't worth saving.
Fed up with gay activists yelling "me first, me first".
I am a Christian and marriage is for a man and woman ONLY, from Bible. Call your your thing something else that isn't a term taken from the Bible. I will pray for you all though.
I do not believe in gay marriages. The government offered gays a civil union that would give them the same rights as married couples but that was not good enough for them and why not. They keep using it as their argument. If gay was meant to be then why are the anatomy's of male and female different? I think the gay subject has just about run it's course. If you didn't think it was wrong there wouldn't be people jumping out of the closet to make it a big deal. You don't see people announcing that they are straight. Just go about your life and keep your lifestyle to yourself. We're sick of hearing about it.
If the voters in Maine don't want gays to be equally as miserable as heterosexuals that has no effect on my life.
Sticking it to a male's ass is repelling.
Unsubscribing because I love Jesus and want to glorify Him in all aspects of life.
