We all been at the place where we find a brand new project that is yet to come. We subscribe the newsletter to be up to date. The project dies, but somehow you keep getting those annoying emails, and doesn't matter how many times we try to unsubscribe, we just can't do it.

Unsubscribing from malling lists is probably the most annoying thing on the web today. I can't count the times I tried to do so, and just can't. Well, not anymore. Now I use Unroll.me.

Do your self a favor and keep your inbox clean.
