A cry for help has surfaced on The Philadelphia 10 website. A distraught reader enquires:
How Do I Cancel My Subscriptions And Stop Getting Free Literature From Church Websites & Have My Info Removed?
Egad! Free literature from churches? Which churches could the correspondent possibly be referring to?
I want to cancel my subscriptions from getting free literature from those church websites that you can request free literature from, I have enough free books and magazine from them, I just got 2 magazines today from Good News,
I want all of my information to be removed from the following sites
The United Church Of God
The Philadelphia Church Of God
and all other sites, does anyone know how do I do that??
Quick as a flash, Scott Ashley, GN editor and COE member, shot off this helpful response.
I work for the United Church of God. All you need to do is write to email@example.com and request that your name and e-mail address(es) be removed from all lists. Be sure to include all e-mail addresses you might have used and the mailing address to which the publications were sent. They should stop immediately, with the exception of anything that might already be in the mail.
Good work Scott. Honestly, if folk put their names on a list, they've got to expect to get what they sent for. And honestly, I used to get more upset about all those stupid Reader's Digest promotions than anything one of the COGs sent out.
But wait, what's wrong with that plea to Philadelphia 10? Oh no, please don't draw it to Bob Thiel's attention, the complainant only mentions UCG and PCG, not... oh ghastly, where's the LCG?! Quick, someone send out a copy of Tomorrow's World!
