Bernthal – Send Spam To The Junk Yard

ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - I brought my chair to this landfill because I wish I could send all the junk mail I receive straight to the dump.

I tried clicking on the unsubscribe link before but I'm told that might not be the best idea.

Apparently that tells spammers that your email account is an active one and in some cases you might end up receiving even more junk mail.

Some just give up and close out their email ... It's not that bad for me .. Not yet.

Some experts suggest dragging your unwanted email to your SPAM folder so future emails will end up there instead of your inbox.

I hope that works.  It would be easier than going to the landfill.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
