If you have ever been on the receiving end of an Evite invitation, you know that once your ‘friend’ gives your email address to Evite (almost always without asking you first) you will receive an endless stream of spam (it’s spam because you did not request it, let along give them permission to put your email address on their mailing list) from Evite, seemingly with no way to opt out of it (making it a violation of Federal law, but apparently Evite doesn’t care about that).

Priceline, however, provides no unsubscribe link, at least in some of their mailings. While we are sure that this is just an oversight on Priceline’s part, it nonetheless can be very frustrating for the Priceline mailing recipient who wishes to opt out of Priceline’s mailings.
