The Third Place

The electronic newsletter (or e-newsletter) is something we are all familiar with — as recipients. Organizations, associations and even vendors, at times, like to impart information to members, clients, customers, etc., via regular newsletters that arrive in our email inbox. We put up with them, for the most part, because they sometimes give us valuable knowledge, advice or notifications of events or products that we are interested in and use. Sometimes when we are not so pleased with content, we delete them, but they keep coming until we “remove ourselves from the list” altogether.
