kaigou: Edward, losing it. (1 Edward conniption)

...since anything is better than what I've got, which is nothing. There's a company that sends me email every single night, and I don't recall ever signing up for getting their shopping newsletter with whatever wacky Japanese department store stuff's on special that day. Normally this wouldn't be an issue, since the link at the bottom would be to unsubscribe, right? So very wrong: one link takes you to a log-in (and if you can't recall your password, it requires your name, your birthdate, and something else, and chances are good I didn't even entire the real thing, 'cause I never do unless c'card information is coming next). The other link takes you to the company's terms of service, and if you click on the "english" link, it doesn't give you the page in English. It gives you some other page about investing (in the company). I just want to bloody well unsubscribe, but there's no link (that I can see) that lets me do this quickly or easily.

Is there anyone on my flist/dwircle fluent enough in Japanese to help me decode this, and possibly figure out how to unsubscribe? I have tonight's email, and I know the address it's sending it to, and all I want is to make them stop sending me emails. The other option is to change my email, but that's a last-ditch thing seeing how it's gmail, not my own domain, so that's more of a hassle. But sheesh, this is annoying. Are unsubscribe options only a western expectation? or are unsubscribe options just spelled out in the kana, with no actual links? No idear.

*cries* I promise to love you and cherish you and call you George, if someone happened to have a few minutes to help me figure it out, or point me where to send an email to ask them to unsubscribe.

Here's her reply: "I'm most definitely not fluent enough. However, I have a Japanese-language comm on my flist, and there are some native speakers there that might be able to help. If your friend can send me the text, I can post it there and ask. Fair 'nuff?"

You can find her LJ contact link at the top of her LJ: http://honorh.livejournal.com/

Can't you mark the email as spam and then have it blocked?

You can send it my way, if you like. It may take me a day or two to get back to you, though.

You could just set up a filter on gmail to automatically delete their emails forever. No Japanese language skills required.

To filter, click on the box next to an email from them so it's checked. Then click "more" (next to all the icons and under the blue search thingy) and click "filter messages like these." From there, you can just have them all deleted automatically.

I'm functional in Japanese, though I will also have no time until Saturday or Sunday, so if it's not solved by then, I'm maat.seshat on gmail, and I'd be happy to take a look.

I've been here 20 years, and I have experience getting off annoying mailing lists, if you haven't found anyone yet. If you want to send a copy of the mail, I'm at busaikkobaby atmark yahoo dotcom, or if you want to c/p, you can do that here.
