One of my husband's friend's wives has recently started a photography business.
This is not a couple I feel any particular connection with. I have never really enjoyed either of their company, though I think I have given the wife a fair shot at friendship, especially when we got pregnant around the same time, but it just never really developed. She and my husband got into a little scuffle on facebook right after our son was born last year, I wasn't part of it at all, but she cooled off significantly to me after that, and I didn't really mind.
For several months she would message me on Facebook maybe once a month to say stuff like, "Good luck when you go back to work!" or "Happy 4 month birthday to DS!", to which I always responded because I didn't want to cause problems between my husband and his friend -- but she never wrote back to my responses. It was weird, but I never minded much.
Then she started adding me to mother / baby stuff groups on Facebook, which was mildly annoying but I'd just delete them, no harm done.
Then I started receiving emails from mailing lists for various baby-related things, some of which indicated that this woman had signed me up. The emails were to my personal email address, the one I only give out to friends/family, and NEVER use for businesses or mailing lists. I took myself off the mailing lists and dropped her a line and acknowledged that she was trying to be helpful but that I really would appreciate it if she didn't give my address out to anyone. I wrote in the email that I use this particular email address only for personal correspondence with my friends and family. She didn't respond to me but I didn't get any more unwanted emails, so I guess she got the message.
Except that now I am on another mailing list -- HER mailing list. For her photography studio. I will deal with the constant social media stuff from her about her photography - the messages, the invites to events, the posts on my wall -- but I'm really irritated by the fact that I'm on another mailing list. The emails that she sends out to this list have no option to unsubscribe, which means that I would have to email her and ask her to take me off of it.
I can't tell if I have a right to be annoyed about this This woman has shown herself to be extremely touchy in the past regarding anything that she perceives as criticism, and that has caused some tension between my husband and his friend. We will never be using her photography services because she is not a good photographer -- she's got a high res camera and that's about it, which is probably why I am even more annoyed by the constant barrage of requests to pay her to take horrible pictures. But if I tell her to stop emailing me, I'm afraid that she'd be really upset.
Tl;dr, because I can't write anything short: Acquaintance added me to her personal business' mailing list without asking, and I don't want to be on it.
So, my question -
1. Do I have a right to be annoyed about this?
2. Should I ask to be removed from her mailing list?
3. If I should ask, what would be good way to word it?
