When two geeks marry, where do they go for their wedding registry?

You guessed it: Amazon.

It’s a work in progress right now, as we think of stuff we’d like.

After making the registry, though, I got some fluff email from Amazon, with the usual link to change email preferences if you don’t want such email at the end. I followed the link and discovered that by setting up a wedding registry, Amazon had reset all my email preferences to “send me as much crap as possible.” I know my preferences had been set to “send me no crap” before this.

I’ll give Amazon the benefit of a doubt and assume it’s a technical gaff of some kind, or a fluke. Amazon has always been a pretty good in regards to how they handle email.

All of this came about just because Purple PassionThis link is meant for adults. doesn’t have a bridal registry, darn it.
