cnn.com has similar stuff with their mailing lists. The best
part about their lists is that they require no 'approval' of
joining the list - they just start sending you mails. Always great coming back from a holiday just to see your mailbox
flooded with a few hundred mails.
useless side note: cnn is completely unresponsive to requests like 'what ip submitted the ´join´ request' 'please block
my address from your list' etc. - perhaps one should just ignore mails from cnn.com - but perhaps the president will
contact me one day when he's at cnn :)

While Intel requires you to login to modify account
information, it does not
require you to login to remove your e-mail (or any e-mail)
from its mailing
.: Example :.
To Remove someone () domain com
Removal of users from Mailing List without authorization.
An oversight which should be resolved by requiring login prior to
unsubscription from the list.
