It's nice that Android lets me disable specific notifications from apps, but it looks like many apps get around this by splitting their spam into many categories like "news", "promotions", "special offers", etc. Annoying.

yup. and when too many people disable a notification category, they create a new category and use it for ads. so, I wind up disabling all notifications for some apps.

@eloquence I had a similar experience with at least one service I was signed up for, I forget which.

I'd receive some marketing email, go to unsubscribe, and notice they just added yet another default-checked checkbox to the growing list.
