that will largely go unread.

I'm referring to the privacy policies I'm being inundated with from all and sundry. It may be an important topic but life's too short to wade through this lot.

Me too. At first I started reading them but it got beyond a joke. All now go ignored and if they genuinely need to contact me again I'm sure they will.

FB, if you fail to respond, you will be removed from their mailing list. New rules

Same here, but I don't remember hearing anything about the new data laws.

i just ignore them, and when I revisit a site that needs my permission to keep data, I just agree at the time. On the plus side, is that hundreds of emails that arrive and get ignored because I'm no longer interested in whatever they're about, will now stop!

"I don't remember hearing anything about the new data laws."

You obviously didn't read the information in Simon Jary's link.

FE, no!

But I'll bet I'm in a majority....

Good, that should save a few rain forests.

I have to admit to not accepting many of the requests to respond.

With any luck, being removed from their list!

I had an email yesterday "My Last Chance or I would be removed etc."

I think I will give their generous last opportunity to be inundated with unsoilicited junk mail a miss on this occassion.
