This task feels daunting and the messages remind me of Mrs. Kravitz, the nosy neighbor from Bewitched - a popular sitcom from the 70's. When you click on the opt out button, a dialogue box often pops up asking for the reason you don't want to receive the messages any more. I can't help hearing my inner voice reply, "It's none of your beeswax."

After going through the opting out process on about 10 messages, I'd had enough. I came to a decision. Samantha, the main character from Bewitched often used magic to deal with Mrs. Kravitz. I have the power to perform magic too. I selected all the conversations. Deleted, confirmed, and deleted again. And just like that, all the messages were sent to trash. Even Google offered me a way out and gave me a chance to undo my email elimination. I didn't relent, stuck to my guns and boy does it feel great to have a completely empty mailbox!
