I recently received a message on careers.stackoverflow.com. I am not interested in contents of the message so I decided to ignore it. I've since had two follow up emails from do-not-reply@ reminding me that I've received a message. How do I stop receiving these 'reminders'?
The message UI I see is this:
This UI is very surprising to me for the following reasons:
I need to select a follow up on why I'm not interested. I understand that this is valuable information for Careers but I have no way to opt out. (Remember that I also can not find a way to unsubscribe from the 'reminder' emails).
This particular message was sent by a recruiter. There is no option to "block messages from recruiters". I can only block this particular 'employer'.
There is no submit button for the "not interested" option! I can not actually submit my choice. If the submit button is the "Send Message" button, then what happens with the message? (I don't have a message for him aside from "go away") I don't want to notify this 'employer' of anything, I don't even want him to know that I've read his message (does he know?). The UI does a very poor job at explaining what is happening.
What I want is to simply ignore this message because I am not interested. So short of blacklisting careers.stackoverflow.com, what are my options?
Note: "mark as read" does not stop the 'reminders'.
Minor bug: clicking on "Block this employer" doesn't actually check the associated checkbox. I suspect this might be intended (because all the other labels work just fine), like one of those "no I don't want to install your Toolbar" where they make it as hard as possible to opt-out. If it is indeed intended then I find this very disrespectful.
