I get all of my emails on my Blackberry. This is great for work, but pesterous for personal email. E-newsletters, e-updates, and e-notifications all take their toll.
For the longest time, I just ignored them, irrationally thinking they'd eventually stop. Then I began to actually set rules and filters so that the newsletters would be marked read upon arrival so that I could ignore them. And for while, I actually just read them and tried to consider them useful.
But, ... I just spent the morning unsubscribing myself from a dozen newsletters. Maybe things aren't so bleak.
