I played basketball for several years with "Lenny". He has a 20-something daughter "Lennita", whom I have met a couple of times when she subbed for the team. On January 23rd, I received an email link to Indegogo (a fundraising site) with the following intro:
"Recording an album has been my dream for as long as I can remember and this year is the year I finally go for it." She then encourages everyone to go to the site, and to share with everyone we know "and bully them into donating too!" Ugh. I hit delete and forgot about it.
Then, on January 31st, I received a helpful reminder from Lennita to make her dreams come true. "And to the people who have already donated that are getting this email, yes, I do like you more than everyone else." Delete.
This morning, I got an email from her father, Lenny with "a gentle reminder to some of you" to support her cause.
Again, Lennita is in her mid-20s, a college graduate, and able bodied. Who does this?! And at what point can I reply with a request to unsubscribe?
