I can't unsubscribe from MyDFA announcements
Edited on Thu Jul-17-08 09:42 PM by Kire
Hello-

I can't stop getting myDFA announcements of local events. I deleted my account close to two years ago and have been getting them ever since.

I filled out the form on this page several times.

Finally, on July 7th, I called DFA in Burlington. I spoke to someone named "Dave", who answered the phone. He seemed nice enough, but he was having what he called "technical problems". He made them sound like they were temporary, and he assured me that I wouldn't be receiving any more emails from DFA. I told him I would call back if I had any more problems.

On July 11th, I received another email. I called Burlington, and found the voicemail for the "webmaster" and left a voice mail, as it was after hours. I never heard from anyone.

So, tonight, at 9:45 PM, I received yet another announcement.

Does anybody have any suggestions as to what I should do now? Does anybody reading this know anybody in Burlington?

I can be reached through PM'ing me on this DU account.

I'm sorry to bother you. This really isn't trying to be a criticism of anything you do, or of anything you stand for. I just need some help. My email service doesn't really block email addresses, they just send them to the trash folder,which I will eventually have to delete manually anyway.

But, besides that, this is a PR issue. Why would anyone want to send a DFA member to Congress if they can't get a simple, constituent issue thing like this resolved in two years?

I really hope that the next couple of replies to this post will be solutions and not more reports about every time I get a new announcement.

Thank you very much,
Kire


PS, in case anyone's interested, there's going to be a comedy night called "Laughing Liberally" in Morristown, NJ on Saturday Night. Check myDFA for details!

Edited on Sat Jul-19-08 12:10 AM by Kire
someone I've never heard of has invited me to a dfa film series in Morristown on July 22nd


also, I emailed somebody who was very active in the leadership of the New jersey for Democracy for America about this. She seems to know a lot of people. Hopefully, she'll be able to help with this.

2. here's another one
Are you ready to help set the record straight about John McCain?

Then join Philly For Changes great electoral campaign, Philly Against McCain, this Sunday July 26 as we give you two ways to help DEFEAT JOHN McCAIN and ELECT BARACK OBAMA.

if you search the site you can find the event, I bet

It won't work for me, though

I don't want them to think that I am ignoring the problem myself.

8. I called and talked to "tim the webmaster"
he said he would put my email address on some bulk list and promised me I won't receive any more emails

I told him it might be a bit more complicated about that, and I told him to check here for the whole story, and that I will continue to post any more emails I get - I don't remember his exact quote because my phone rang about something else the instant I hung up, but he seemed to say that the problem would be solved.
