They're in an industry, supposedly working to develop a business and become successful. One of the most acknowledged techniques to doing this is building a list.
They're building a list to be able to capitalize on the patterns of success.
And they get on here and post, ranting and raving about having to opt in to another marketer's list to get something free, or having to opt in to get a download link.
I just don't understand it, and I am getting pretty annoyed at the tear in the beer crying - ON A MARKETING FORUM THAT DISCUSSES MARKETING TECHNIQUES AT LENGTH... ESPECIALLY AUTORESPONDERS AND OPTING IN.
Go find some new mother forum or 4x4 offroading website to cry about it.
