Following up on my earlier gripe about MediaPost and their need for me to renew my free email newsletter subscriptions.  The following is now appearing at the top of a few of my emails.

So I’m about to get automatically unsubscribed to a couple of the newsletters.  The link to “renew now” does work and the button to proceed to steps 4&5 doesn’t error out anymore: it just reloads the page with steps 1, 2 and 3.  I tried logging out, logging back in and just updating my subscriptions from the general account maintenance page so we’ll see if that works.  If not MediaPost is about to unsubscribe someone who reads their multitude of emails, links to the items contained in them and generally gets a lot of use from the content.

That’s a fantastic business plan they’ve got there.
