If people want to join Shelfari, that's fine. Apparently a new wave of people are currently discovering this Amazon-listed book based networking site.
Do not press the invite button and spam everyione you ever gmailed. Twice. (They send two emails for each member, they don't bother to track whether than person has already been emailed the same spam eleventy-million times.)
Now it was a minot concession that they finally made a fairly-hard-to-find opt out form.
It's stopped working for me and I am getting the emails. Again.
Seriously do they not understand how irritating it is to get this flood of email when Shelfari themselves don't have any easily found customer support or complaints email address (anyone know of one?). As a small press author I already favor other services not locked into Amazon (e.g. Librarything) but from now on I think I will take any chance offered to suggest people not use Shelfari. I just need a cute slogan/logo to sum up why they suck. Any suggestions?
(I guess some of you probably like them, feel free to tell me about that too).
