    I've found spam... turkey spam, actually... goes good fried up with a sweet onion and peppers over rice. I'm also thinking of a take-off on the Irish national dish... frying up some of that turkey spam with potatoes and cabbage as one would normally use corned beef.

    I've had a couple non-spam issues with Midway. Be really careful about mailing and billing addresses,
    they won't hesitate to send your stuff to an address you haven't used in ten years.

    $60.00, for a dedicated gas block, and they don't include a seven cent roll pin? Damn...

    E-Mail addresses are free from a variety of services like gmail, Yahoo, etc. I have several email addresses... one is exclusively for ordering stuff online. I use a different email address to register for forums like this one and yet another for personal e-mail with friends / family.

    I even have a special email address I use for places that I know are going to put the email address I give them on spam lists... that would be the Ex-Wife's email address.

    Jeez moderators can we close this thread. Nothing at all is gained. One guy bashes a company who does not deserve bashing.

    So, your 5th post ever on this forum is to bash a company that in most cases provides the product I want at the best price I can find and ships it pronto? Sundays, holidays, I've gotten email "shipped" notices from Midway on Sunday evenings! I'm certainly among the enablers that "allow" them to stay in business because I feel plenty of respect from them.

    Of your 4 previous posts, two others also complained about Midwayusa's customer service; you claim they won't pick up the phone or respond to contact. Funny, they've allowed me to return and immediately refunded clearance items without any questions, far above and beyond what most will do. Are you sure that you're using the right contact information?

    Agree w/ Ericuda; mods, please close the post.

    What threads that get locked here is a mystery to me. In general i find it over moderated, but yet this thread stays open.

    Must be the moderators whim if a thread is locked or not.

    Chances are the spam came from Google search when you have looked up Midway. A way to prevent this in the future is to use a different search engine that does not track your activity.

    Duckduckgo will take care of that (start.duckduckgo.com is the search address to use.)

    No problem for me getting spam from other companies; now I DO get about 2-3 a day from Midway themselves touting something on sale

    Except Duck Duck GO is now linked with Yahoo and that search engine sucks compared to Midway. One thing with any of them is to never click on the results at the very top; those are usually paid ads for placement and can take you down the rabbit hole.

    Wow, two pages over a drive by OP demanding a boycott of Midway just because he can't figure out how to unsubscribe from their email list.

    Ditto.
    BTW, how do you know it was Midway that sent out your contact info?

    Take a look at this response. Still a better alternative than Google

    https://www.quora.com/How-anonymous-is-DuckDuckGo

    As with any search, be careful what you click on and don't enter personal information unless you know the site is verified to be what you think it is.

    Yeah. I wonder if the OP is a troll who wanted to see how many of us like MidwayUSA and/or Spam. And of 40 or so posts to now, how many are the OP's follow-ups?

    OP, sort your issue out by contacting MidwayUSA.
