Problem is, I end up getting subscribed to mailing lists all the time because a lot of people with the same last name and a similar first name don't pay the fuck attention to what address they're typing in.

THIS! I have a rather regional last name... it's not common. But every moron out there seems to think it's theirs. I've done a lot of the same things that others have done... responded, canceled, ignored, etc. I've even tried to get the sources of these to require a confirmation link be sent to the subscribing email... no luck there either.

Also, GMail is very good at catching SPAM, in my experience. Every once in a while, I'll get a few that I report and from then on, I don't see them anymore.

If you push the "extra ice" button on the soft drink vending machine, you won't get any ice. If you push the "no ice" button, you'll get ice, but no cup.

Working...
