I tried all different methods to contact them to remove my email ID from their database but nothing worked out so far. I never subscribed to any of their website sections, but still receives email from so called MNCs. I tried to contact them using
a) Online contact form
b) Email extracted from whois indiatimes.com (it was also bounced back)
Here is the list of companies who have used their shity spammy service
a) IBM/ Lenovo Desktop/Laptop
c) UTI Bank and many others to send spam
I’m going to block entire indiatimes.com domain on my mail server. Sorry if you use indiatimes email id I suggest Gmail / Yahoo free email service or setup your own mail server. We don’t have very good spam laws here.
