Disney Online Store = Spammer?

Well maybe not spammer exactly, but damn close.

I bought something from the disney online store on the 17th. Since then, they have sent me promotional email daily. Aside from my order/shipping confirmation, I don’t want to receive mail from them. (Especially not daily.) So, after the first message, I followed thier “take me off your mailing list” instructions. (followed the link, confirmed my address, yadda yadda)

You have requested to unsubscribe [redacted]@[redacted].com from all types of future commercial email from Disney Shopping, Inc regarding its products and services.

Please press “Confirm” to proceed.

After clicking the confrim button, I get this little gem:

The request to add [redacted]@[redacted].com to the Do Not Email list has been recorded. Please allow up to 10 business days for your request to be processed.

Wait, what? 10 business days!? Why the hell is it going to take 10 business days to remove my address from your mailing list? And in the mean time, you’re going to keep flooding my inbox? (Yes, I do consider daily promotional message from the same vendor a flood.) This should be an AUTOMATIC PROCESS, folks.
