Over the last week, I've been unsubscribing from everything. There wasn't really a plan; I just sort of started doing it out of irritation, and then continued because I noticed that it was really easy to unsub these days, especially compared to a few years ago. Then I read _The Tyranny of E-mail_ and it occurs to me that some part of my brain was probably going, hey, you are spending _way_ too much time not enjoying checking your e-mail.
The problem has been completely addressed. What time I spend checking my e-mail now is entirely enjoyable (and also a lot less of it).
