How *not* to get you to do something

Tech Add comments

Russel Beattie has closed his blog.

Now he wants people to unsubscribe from it, and hints at this via this obnoxious page.

Does that make you:

  • Want to unsubscribe
  • Want to subscribe a million bots to it

    Yeah, wonder why he didn’t simply turn his feed off. He’s such a weird guy.

    Give poor Russ a break especially now that he has stopped blogging.

    Actually, that post just made me want to stay more, to see what crazy stunt he tried next to get me unsubscribed (what actually happens when everyone unsubscribes from a feed in Bloglines).

    He could do like “Dive Into Mark” and have his feed return the appropriate status code (I forget which one, 410?).
