Any time you receive an unsolicited email (one that you did not request, from a person or entity you do not know), it is considered spam. It is also known as junk mail, Unsolicited Bulk Email, a canned meat mostly eaten in Hawaii, and probably a few other names. Bottom line is, most of us prefer to live without it! And at The Overwhelmed Brain, we only send email to those that have requested that we do so.
Although there are laws against spam, each state enforces things differently. And each state even defines spam differently. To me, it’s quite obvious what spam is. But apparently, when you get into the legal system, common sense goes out the window, and spam is now a thousand different things to a thousand different people.
I can assure you that I will never spam you, nor sell your email to anyone – ever. Spamming goes against everything I stand for!
I mean, talk about a time waster and being overwhelmed! Spamming is simply bad karma, period.
All that being said, if you are starting to feel like our emails are getting too spammy, let me know! I never want that to happen, and will put a stop to any such practice. You can reach me at
