GDPR-mageddon : Internet set to collapse under weight of Opt-in emails!
Tuesday, May 22, 2018 by: Ben J. Johnson, Staff Writer
The Internet may well collapse under the weight of GDPR email subscription opt-in emails being sent out by companies desperately scrabbling to retain the 1000s of emails they collected by hook or crook. With new meddling EU regulations coming into force on the 25th May, companies that have used dubious methods for including people on their spam-lists have realised that a 20m Euro fine just isn't worth it when trying to sell stuff to people that already just bought your product or went with a cheaper competitor anyway. Computer geeks around the planet are fighting fires in server rooms from Azerbaijan to Zambia, as the internet pipes become overloaded with the billions of emails being sent and spontaneously combust! Experts are hoping that after the 25th the amount of emails will plummet, as companies must have consent by that time to send marketing emails to potential customers.
