Ask HN - When should a web app send marketing emails? (srirangan.net)

An email from Asana asking me to "Do great things" triggered this post.

I have nothing against Asana, I love their app and will recommend it to my team for the next project, but I didn't expect this email from them.

Also, lets not make this Asana specific. Its a very common pattern for web apps to send out needless marketing emails.

When did this become acceptable?
