Stopping The Spam?

In accordance with the article, GW Students Stand Against Spam, written by Senioritis suggesting to get control over the GW spam is a novel idea!

Depending on the student, the repetitive Infomails that come through day in and day out will either be just two or three more emails to ignore and delete, or they will be useless emails, besides the closings and recent crimes, that clutter your inbox and blowup your phones for those of you who have Blackberries, iPhones, and other forms of smartphones. I remember over hearing one day when a person claimed that the Infomails are almost as annoying as the incessant Facebook notifications that come to our inboxes on a daily basis. Wouldn’t it be nice if students were given the option to opt out of receiving certain emails from the University? As senioritis points out,

“Outlined in their statement of principles is to separate emergency and time sensitive information from the “fluff”.

Well, this certainly does not seem to be the case. For those who are annoyed by inconsequential emails, you can follow the link and join the cause in hopes of pushing the GW administration to recognize that a policy change needs to be made.
