Pet Peeve of the day

Pet peeve of the day: guilt-tripping robo-emails from lists I'm unsubscribing to, products I'm canceling orders for, and bloggers who are concerned about our "relationship" since I haven't clicked on one of their links lately.

None of these situations warrant phrases like "we're sorry to see you go," "we miss you already," and the one that is really inspiring this post, "I guess this is goodbye!"

Rationally, I know it's a bot and what they really miss is my $$ or some potential benefit the blogger will get from my adding to their hit number, but I still don't appreciate the manipulative verbiage.
