Apparently the new rules of the road for email “marketing” (the quotes are not strictly necessary, but I don’t care) is that the people who spit it out can opt you in w/o asking as long as they let you opt out.

I appreciate the opt out, but I don’t appreciate having to process crap emails for lists I did not sign up to be on.

    The Report Spam button has become a heavily valued tool in Gmail for me. It’s a combination of concern that opting-out will set myself up for more spam (because I’ve confirmed I’m a real person), and a refusal to give them one iota more of my time than that.
