This has been annoying me a shitload lately. I’ve been getting “Rush Hour Rewards” spam from my Nest thermostat, and I can find zero help anywhere officially from Google. It looks like it’s based on address, though, so Google “officially” recommends you simply ask to be “de-listed” from your local energy provider’s spam. This, to me, is a ridiculous solution that requires an equally ridiculous rebuttal.
So here’s what we’re going to do:
- Open your Nest App
- Go to Settings
- Go to Home Info
- Go to Address
- Change your address to something very offensive.
Mine is currently set to “42069 FuckGoogle Lane Suckmycock, EatShitAndDieGoogle”. The only problem I can foresee is that you’re going to continue to get spam based on the Zip Code. I’m currently researching Zip Codes that are unserviceable. I intended to use that as the main event, with the offensive text simply being the cherry on top to let Google know we’re not going to just roll over and take it.
EDIT: VICTORY! Set your zip code to “00001”. Boom. Done. Don’t let these cocksuckers win.
