Submission + - Microsoft sends spam (

0xEFBBBF writes: "I registered for the Windows 7 Beta and later RC. While doing so I double checked that I didn't subscribe to any newsletter. I always do that when creating a new account anywhere. Still I now occasionally receive a Windows 7 newsletter. Today Microsoft reminded me that the beta version is to be discontinued soon. Thanks, but I don't care!

At the bottom of the mail is a link to my newsletter subscriptions but I don't have any. I already replied to the first Microsoft spam kindly asking to be removed. No response, no action.

Am I the only one who's annoyed by that attitude of Microsoft? Has somebody been able to be unlisted? As far as I know this practices are even illegal in Germany regarding data and consumer protection acts!"
