How do a person unsubscribe from instructables? Answered

I have been trying to unsubscribe from instructables and I have even send an email to the help desk without any joy.
Please give me an indication on where to go to to unsubscribe.

too many emails congest my inbox, and Instructibles leads the way. I do not mind being a part of the community, but the email link to unsubscribe leads to nowhere, in any of the emails I test out. If you provide a link, make sure it works.

If you mean the regular newsletter, there's an "unsubscribe" button in the email.

If you mean the site itself, send an email to service@instructables.com (make sure you send that email from the same address you used to create the account).

The reply won't be instant (it's monitored by humans), but it will happen.

I am very curious, though, as to *why* you would want to leave? Membership costs you nothing, generates no spam, and you have access to thousands of projects and contests with very real cash values.

Why would you want to leave? What ever did we do to you to make you want to quit?

You don't need to unsubscribe, just don't ever come back to visit. You will not get notices of being inactive if you haven't been visiting for a while.

Probably not the intended way, but if nothing else works, just change the email address to an email that doesn't exist. Like nomail@example.com . This is safe since example.com is especially reserved for examples and tests etc. There will never be a working email address.
