Disagree, as they threaten that a previous interest in a particular product
is a green light to email about ANY of their products. IMHO that is going
too far. I opted out a few days ago when the MD emailed that there were
some new sockets in stock and then another email followed not long
afterwards. Don't know whether I am in practice opted-out or not but when I
checked my account I still have the opt-in box ticked, something I am not
sure I ever selected. Without necessarily agreening with the OP, the
Screwfix letter is too cavalier for my liking.
YOU buy from Screwfix and you don't want to know what new products or price
reductions they have to offer you?
Why not just add it to your Block List?
I'm with Screwfix on this one.
I order things that I want when I want them for the normal reasons.,
their prices are pretty good, delivery is usually good etc.
For the same reasons as I don't want junk snail mail or junk phone
calls. While there is a small possibility I may derive some benefit, the
hassle factor isn't worth it for me.
YMMV (it would seem :-))

Mmm yes that's right isn't it.
Don't suppose Mr MacNamara put his email address on his letter did he?

If it's not firstname.lastname@example.org it'll probably be
email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
