Funcom is Spammer
    I mostly play MMORPG's. Well, Everquest atleast but every now and then new mmorpg comes out i test them out if they have something better than Eq has. None has succeeded yet in that field and Funcom's Anarchy Online was the worst dissappointment at the time.

    It was buggy as hell when it came out and somehow i just didnt feel my thing so i ended up my subscribe to the free month. Few months passed and i got offer from Funcom via email that if i want, i have new free month to give AO a new testrun since they had fixed most of the bugs and made the game better. So i thought, why not.. But when i got to website to re-activate my account, i couldnt because they informed that i hadnt paid from my played month. Which was supposed to be free anyway. Nice way to go Funcom.

    Obviouysly i was bit disappointed about that and i tried to petition but i got few mails saying that i need to pay up my cued month or i wont get that new free month (which was said i allready have it). Bye bye, Funcom i thought, im still happy customer to Sony/Everquest and i removed all my email addresses from their databases and send unsubcription emails to *all* lists i had joined then. So, no more Anarchy Online and Funcom for me. Who more wrong could i be.

    Some time passed and then it began, first spams arrived. "We have done this new thing, would you come back to look us". "Bug fixex bug fixes". "Rubi-ka Report this rubi-ka report that". Yeah yeah, its few emails montly or so which is nothing compared to rest of the spam i get but this just proves how fscked up funcom is.

    I've tried to unsubscribe from all the lists i stil get. Nothing happens. I send emails to their helpdesk. Nothing happens. It seems my account even still works in their customer website but nothing can be done from there. And i still get the frigin rubi-ka messages that i really really really dont want.
