WNYC spam

Monday, February 12, 2007 by Dave Winer.

9 times out of 10, I don't give money to public radio stations, because once you do, you never hear the end of it.  Permalink to this paragraph

A few weeks ago, in response to a request for support from On The Media podcast, I gave $100 to WNYC. I don't even live in NY. Now I'm getting a steady stream of spam from them with all kinds of special offers. This really sucks. Permalink to this paragraph

Of course I have asked to be removed from the spam list, and how tacky is it to ask for a pledge less than a month after getting a gift of $100. Permalink to this paragraph
