Default Happy National Day texts

Is anyone else here getting bombarded with text blasts from retailers? Seems to have gotten silly with the number of texts being sent out From thursday and still receiving them today- bloody annoying in MHO

I'm not even sure how most of them got my number as I stopped giving my number out quite quickly after realising they send so much spam and thought I had removed myself from most of the mailing lists- presumably the big franchise groups share mailing lists between brands? I could murder someone at Amber who felt the need to text at 1.30 am GRRR!

Even got two from HRH Mo

Anyone else getting peed off with it all or has someone given my number to every mailing list in the world?

Oh and Happy National Day! :-)

You can unsubscibe from most texts kitty (see link)

I'm more amused at people being pleased at having received the text from Sheik Mo. As if he sat down and sent individual messages to everyone himself...
