These bloody form designers.

I was filling in this form earlier and there were some fields which were not marked mandatory so I didn’t fill them in (because why should I ?)

And then later, I received a dozen automated e-mails one for each non-mandatory field I did not fill asking me to provide them that information.

    Wow. It would be so much easier to make them mandatory in the form itself instead of implementing a system which sends out emails.

    Probably it’s done deliberately this way.
    One is more likely to send the form if there are less required fields.
    Once they have your data, they ask for more and hope that it is more likely for you to give it to them because you are already signed up.
    So, marketing and psychology reasons maybe.

    @Lensflare But one e-mail for each missing field ? No, no and no.
