Neville Clarence Technologies: king of spam

Neville Clarence Technologies is a South African company that makes devices that help the blind and visually impaired. Unfortunately Neville himself must be brain-dead, because I have tried everything I can think of to get off their mailing lists, short of a lawsuit.
And my attempts to get off their mailing list have been going on for years. They just won't take 'no' for an answer. I have spoken to Neville's wife (about 3 years ago), I have filled in the form on their web site, I have clicked the "unsubscribe" link to obtain an error ("Database error 1146 while doing query Table 'ncteca_db1.phplist_user_blacklist_data' doesn't exist"), I have phoned their switchboard. What else must I do? Sue them for violating the ECT Act and send the guy to jail for a year?
The person sending the emails is incompetent, because the email was sent just before midnight on 1st April, advertising an event that took place earlier that day, and one that has already started today. DUH! I hope their products and service aren't as bad as their marketing.

Lawyers letter.
If he doesn't listen to that, he deserves to be keel hauled.
