Major US Newspaper Ignores Unsubscription from Service Requests - Lodge Complaint To?

Q: Major US Newspaper Ignores Unsubscription from Service Requests - Lodge Complaint To?

Why is it proving so difficult for the 'Washington Post' to unsubscribe my email address from their 'Breaking News Alert' email Newsletter service??

Over the past few months, I have repeatedly tried to unsubscribe from 'Breaking News Alert', an email Newsletter service provided by the 'Washington Post' newspaper, in the USA.

So far, I must have sent at least 200 requests, asking for the email service to be stopped. This has been done via an automatic link in each email which they call their 'Express[Sic] Unsubscribe Service', to washingtonpost.com.

Recently however, I have resorted to replying to their emails, by including terse unsubscribe request messages, directed at the 'Washington Post', and specifically addressed to the Desks of that newspaper's Ombudsman [who is actually a woman], the National [US] Editor, and the Foreign [rest of Mother Earth's Nations] Editor. The 'Breaking News Alert' is also included as part of the email.

So where does that get me? Absolutely nowhere!! Not a peep, nor a whimper......let alone any acknowledgement of my emails. The 'Breaking News Alert' is still being sent on an almost daily basis, and being directed immediately into my Junk Mail Folder. I am now sick and tired of this whole affair, and wish to be rid of this subscription, once and for all.

What I want to know is this......Is there some form of Federal Regulatory Authority in the USA that I can refer this saga to, as a matter of complaint? All I want is for the Washington Post to remove my email address from their subscription service! That's it!!

Preferred Solution: Major US Newspaper Ignores Unsubscription from Service Requests - Lodge Complaint To?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

They want to charge me 20 for the ability to download windows 7. Microsoft doesn't charge for this same device. As a matter of fact, I'm going to bypass this entire issue and pay 18 for a new product key and rights to download as often as I want. I still want to know where to go to get the fee refunded. It's amazing that they think they can charge for a service that the developer gives for free.

Hi , I have Lenovo Z 580 Ideapad. For 4 years , I never faced any major issue regarding my laptop . 3 months back its fan stopped working. So i visited an authorized service centre located at Gurugram. Since my laptop is out of warranty , they told me that the fan need to be replaced and charges will be applied. They said that they will order the part and let me know when my laptop will be ready . Few days back, they called me and asked me to pickup my laptop.I went there and checked my laptop , its fan was working . I paid the full amount. They gave me the receipt But they didn't provide me the Fan's warranty card or anywhere the warranty was mentioned in the receipt. They didn't even told me when the warranty of the Fan they replaced , was gonna expire. I trusted them , thus I didn't argue that time.But now after 2 & half months , the Fan stopped working again . I went again and showed them my laptop.

Hi,TL;DR;As much as I love Lenovo computers, and use them for professional use for the past 5-6 years and buy them for all my employees, I won?t ever buy a Lenovo in Israel (and of course wont suggest it anymore) as long as the service provider stays "CPM computer services" , as they are simply useless, and I actually lost money because of their inability to give service.The longer version:I want to make a complaint about your Israel warranty service provider  - CPM computer services.I bought a 520S ideapad (with i7 processor) from an official local supplier (KSP israel) which I'm familiar with and trust,after a few weeks the laptop stopped booting and I couldn't start it (happens, I know, I didn?t panic..)As the computer was a few weeks old I've contacted the official service provider CPM which picked up the computer after a few days, and sent me an email that the computer was received.Since that moment I haven't heard from them for almost a month, until I contacted them just to hear they are still "working on it"I've been calling them each week since then, to find out they don?t know what is the problem - so finally I've convinced them to supply me a new computer, so they offered me a new idea pad with a worse spec than the one I had, and couldn't understand why I rejected their "generous" offer.After a week or so, they decided to give me a full refund, which I'm still waiting for after another month (3'rd month without a computer).the bo...

Hi

I've recently restored my Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OS on to a new SSD using Macrium Reflect.

My hosts file has always contained entries for local websites and has always worked until now. After much hair pulling and reading of forums, the only way that I could get the DNS Client to read and process the hosts file was by adding the "NETWORK SERVICE" user permission to it. It already had "SYSTEM", "Administrators" and "Users" (my user account).

This was never required before, so I'm confused as to what has happened to require it now?

Anyone have any ideas?

I bought my T470 a month ago with "3 Years Onsite Next Business Day" warranty. And recenty I noticed there's some problem with my screen, so I called Lenovo. And I've already got the new screen they sent to me.Here is the problem: THE TECHNICIAN NEVER CAME!!! And they keep on saying they will come to fix my laptop "tomorrow", and I can't even remember how many "tomorrow"s have passed!!! What's worse, they would never call to tell you they are not coming on that day, so you need to call again and ask, and they will say they will come "tomorrow", and then they are not coming, and you need to call again. Here is the loop:while (1<2){    YouNeedToCall();    TheyWillSayTomorrow();}  Tl;dr: For my warranty, Can I just go to one of the local Lenovo Authorized Service Store to get my laptop fixed? I don't want to wasting time calling the technicians anymore. I tried to call lenovo today, and 30 mins passed all the agents were still busy lol! Thanks in advance!!!!!

Its been 12years since my wife and I have had a get-a-way vacation and where we are going to stay has wi-fi. It is an in town location (Rehoboth Beach DE) and I called down and was told that their system has been recently upgraded with a local security company.

I don't need it for me, but Kathy has a Samsung Galaxy S3 "smart phone"? It works well here at home with no security problems, but I would like to know if there is anything I should look out for when we get there where we are staying in Delaware.

To the best of my knowledge her phone has the latest Android OS (Android™ 4.3 Jelly Bean), but don't know if it should go to the Android 4.4. KitKat (it might just have kitkat, I don't know) because I've seen that there are problems updating that old of a phone. She's had it for about 2 going on 3years. It does have the M-Bam Anti-Malware Mobile App.

Is the App sufficient or are there settings on the phone that I should re-set to harden the security? One being to cut down on the phones scanning distance in looking for a wi-fi.

I realize I should be more up on this, but this is the first time I've run into this; Security outside the home for Wi-Fi access.
I have a boatload of other thoughts about this but I would like to wait until y'all respond because my questions may be moot.

EDIT: My wife tells me she has the Samsung Nexus, but we have Verizon and Verizon doesn't list it Sprint does, Verizon has the Galaxy.

Hey, I'm gonna try to include all the info. I can, since I know I'm not really tech savvy.

I'm at Camp Lejeune, NC, and back in June I signed up for wireless service from nnu wireless. I had that for about four or five months...sometimes there was no service for a few days, but I figured this to be the norm for wireless service.

Then one day, I went to log on, and when I opened Internet Explorer it took me to a different wireless company, an Interstate Telecom (itiga.net), and I had to register with them to get wireless service. I checked nnu wireless' service list, and my building was no longer on it...I guess they just got tired of us, heh.

Anyway, service with itiga has been pretty good, up until about three weeks ago, when it slowed down to what seems like slower than 56k. I play WoW, and 5k latency is now the norm for me. Download speeds are 4-10k/s, and for the life of me I don't know why.

Running Vista on a Sony Vaio laptop, 2GhZ processor, 1.5g ram, 100g HD, Marvell Yukon 88E8036 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller. Under the Manage Wireless Networks tab I have the 'Internet4' location assigned to automatically connect, but in my list of available wireless networks I always see an 'Internet', and sometimes 'Internet 3', 'Internet 9', and Internet 11', but none of these are usually able to connect.

If this is an issue that others experience using the same service, you need to contact the wireless provider. However, if it's just your computer, you might consider spyware/malware scans first.

Hey guys

I tried installing Windows Vista Service Pack 2 and i ran into a problem. So I installed a part of SP2, then the computer restarts, and a black screen appears where it starts naming files, for example:

"2785/323323 blahblah.dll"

I come back to my computer and I notice that it was hanging at "iexplore.exe" and another thing came along with it, it was called:

"!! 0xc0190036 !!"

I googled that number and users have told each other that they must go into the command prompt using the vista system recovery CD. But first, I tried restarting the computer but it kept going back to that black screen and always stopped at "iexplore.exe" with that weird code next to it. I went and tried system restore and there was one point available, and when i clicked it, it found errors and i let it perform a scan to find the errors. after it was halfway done, the scan just stopped out of nowhere and said absolutely nothing about it. I clicked the restore point again and it scanned, and the same result occurred. Safe mode does not work either. System repair does not do anything (tried it at least 10 times)

After that, I tried going into the command prompt and tried to rename the file because it worked for everyone else who had this problem, but not for me, and i'm getting quite worried because I'm a photographer and i have very important photos in my HDD.

Hi,

I have an Advent PC - AMD ATHLON 64 3400+
The drive is a MAXTOR 6B200P0. It is an "off the shelf" machine, all pre-installed and ready to go with windows XP. It has worked trouble free for 18 months or so. This morning service pack 3 installed itself as an 'automatice update'. My virus checker insists that auto updates are enabled or else it nags like mad. I didn't take much notice and didn't realise what it was doing in the background, it just said 'your computer needs to reboot for updates to take effect'. So, I let it...

It rebooted to 'boot device not found'. The hard disk is stuffed!
I have (after the event) now read all the sp3 warnings and what not, but no one seems to have had a problem as serious as this. I can not try any of the recommended fixes as windows doesn't even attempt to boot.

I fired up the PC with a Windows recovery disk and then with a Bart PE rescue disk that I made a while back. But... I didn't really know what to do with them...

At the time I could still see the files on the disk, it just was no longer a bootable device. The BIOS could identify it ok (and it still can).

I went to work, came back, had another go... now I can't see the files any more! I hope booting with the rescue disk didn't do something nasty? (I only looked, I didn't attempt to try and do anything clever to it, so I can't see why it should, but...)

Hello samiam4479 and welcome to BC

If the newspaper doesn't have a searchable data base just use Google or Yahoo and do a search for (columnist's name) + (newspaper name) + (keyword) without the brackets.

A little known fact: Ernest Hemingway worked as a reporter during WWII for the Toronto Star. So, if I wanted to search for his columns I would use Google and search for Hemingway + Toronto Star + War. You can vary the order of the name/name/keyword you use.

Is there any way to save a newspaper article as a pdf? I want to save some news pieces but don't want to print them out, I would rather have them in an electronic format. I am on a webpage right now but am unsure if this is even possible. Thanks

I like to respond to online newspaper articles and when I respond I get multiple (Usually3) comments in the response area. All the same comment, just printed out 3-4 times. They frown on the multiple responses. Any ideas how to fix it?. I've used both Firefox and Explorer both have the same problem, so maybe it's in my XP. Do you know if when You respond in explorer does it go through outlook express to get to the comment area? Do you have any idea how to fix it?

It's a USB forum, and they may have an answer there. And I suspect you'll get an answer here eventually . . . got to be patient here . . . this is a busy forum (which is good . . . the USB forum I gave the link to is not that busy, so you may get an answer here first).

I am pretty sure this is an XP problem. One of my machines recently began to crawl, taking 10 minutes or more to get through the boot stuff as opposed to 1 minute prviously. A good deal of thrashing going on as well. I discovered that the taskmanager showed only 64 meg of real memory of the 512 meg in the machine. This seems to be OS related since the bootup memory check shows all of it and a quick test with the Slackware rescue disk shows all of it in place. Could this be another 'feature' of SP2? I am about to do major surgery on the machine but I would bet that a new motherboard is going to change nothing.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

In Win 7  Control Panel> Power settings, I've set everything to 'Never' as below in both the 'Balanced' and 'Power saver' options, but the PC display swiches itself off after 10 minutes, and the computer shuts down after 30!
I may be partly to blame because earlier I set them for 10 and 30 as an experiment, but even though I changed them to Never/Never later, my system seems to have permanently locked on 10 and 30 and ignores the 'Never' settings!
How can I make it ignore 10 and 30 and stay on?
Or have I misunderstood the options in some way?

Select that option.....and then click on the change plan settings beside it, and select never....and never...

I upgrade to Win2K and it doesnt "See" my scanner at all. I have downloaded latest drivers and installed to no avail. The scanner is a Plustek 9630 paralell and hooked in with my HP printer. Bios is set for EPP. Ive tried hardware wizard and the scanner utility but it system doesnt see it at all. When I runt the d'loaded driver utility it seems to run through but nothing happens. Ive tried doing Add New Hardware... the scanner is not in list so i select "have disk" but when i go to the directory the d'loaded utility created i get "no driver found" ... anyway I know this is a shot in the dark but i dont understand why it worked under WinMe but not under the invincible w2k. Thanks

My Dell Dimension 8400 runs Windows XP SP3. Rather than use a screen saver I opt for having the monitor power down to standby after 5 minutes. However, XP does not always do as settings dictate. Several times daily the monitor does not power down. I have to go to the power settings in display properties, and reaffirm what is already there, then "apply" and "OK" on the settings screen, then "OK" on the Display Properties box.
I've seen other posts in which the settings have changed by themselves. My settings do not change, XP simply ignores them.
I have installed and run Malwarebytes, which detected some issues, but the problem persists.

The computer also only recognizes my MP3 player a finite number of times when connected via USB cable. When the MP3 player will no longer be recognized, only a reboot seems to rectify the problem.

Any ideas??

Bit of a weird one here and im stuck.
My DVD drive (LITE-ON DVD-RW LDW 401S) records to cd's and dvd's no problem and will read disks with no problem.
My problem is if i have a disk in the drive and i want to insert a new disk the drive will not change the information to the new disk.
e.g. disk 1 is in the drive and is full of text files, i insert disk 2 into the drive wich has video files on it but the drive still thinks i have disk 1 in the drive with the text files.
If i open up the disk with disk 2 in, my pc still shows disk 1 stuff and if i click on anything it says please insert disk into drive.
The only way i can get the drive to recongnise the new disk and data is to restart my pc or disable/re-enable the dvd drive.
Help please.

This is a puzzling problem. I work in a lab where there have been several p166MMX/32MB installed. All of them work fine, but one appeared to have only 16MB of RAM, and thus ran W95b slower than most typewriters.

Today I was going to change the RAM over with one of the lesser used machines, but I was surprised to find that the SIMMs in each machine are exactly the same. Same configuration, same make, same location... exactly.

Having swapped the simms over with another PC, they work correctly as 2x16MB = 32MB. In this one machine, they (and others) only work as 16MB in whatever combination I use.

I have tried filling up all 4 simm slots (64MB) and then the system only seems 32MB of it. NO other problems are apparent to me, it is just that the PC does not recognise the extra RAM.

Any ideas?

Have you gone into the CMOS Setup and enabled the added ram? If the added ram isn't enabled in the CMOS setup then Windows won't see it.

Hi
 
After a clean install of windows 7 ultimate (i have the original dvd), with the same hardware, and the same version of windows, nothing special installed in terms of software and no other hardware added, the onboard Intel HD Audio device and m-audio audiophile 2496,which has never caused any problems, does not show up at all
 
I have tried installing earlier drivers, too, but it did not work.
 
My machine is: q6600 core 2 quad 4 gig mobo gigabyte ga g31m SL2 onboard HD Audio Audiophile 2496
 
I have also tried maya 44 xte which is pci express - not seen.
 
all the three cards were installed before and got in no conflict.
 
 
The windows audio service is set to automatic and is running.
 
FOr the first time ever I have updated the bios half an hour ago, but this does not change anything.
 
I have also tried inserting the audiophile 2496 card into another pci port, but there is no other pcie slot to use.
 
 
 
Please help. what can I do to diagnose and remove the problem?

Here is an update.
 
After turning off azalia codec support in bios, the onboard hd card is no longer appears.
 
Both pci and pcie card is noticed (i connect them separately). The latter's installer returns error: access denied.
