    You could always mark the emails as spam and they should be filtered out of you inbox.

    A trick I like to use is to change my registered email address to the company in questions email address. Let them get their own spam!

    I like that idea, change the email address to their own and let them send it to themselves!! Great idea!

    I do something similar with junk mail I get from the post office. If it's an offer with a self addressed return envelope in it, I send everything, including the envelope they used to mail it to me, back to them. Does not take them long to realize that I'm costing them money and they are not getting any of mine.

    I like the email idea.

    I send everything back in the return address but I do NOT include my own address they sent it to. I want to have them just simply continuing to spend money on me.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Backpacker should feature someone who appreciates hammock camping and knows what they are doing.

    Oops, see that this was already covered in other thread.
    you are right but great advertisement for jacks r better,these guys from backpacker were definetly out of thier comfort zone lolneo

    What a joke

    Honestly, that video was a joke. Very unprofessional.... they didn't even have answers for their own questions.

    It was a embarrassment to their web site in my opinion.

    I liked the "any old knot will work" approach when tying it off to a tree. I would like to be there when they have to untie it and end up cutting it. That video is just another example of why Backpacker magazine is not really very well respected.
