How much of the email that arrives in your inbox comes to you with statements that assert that you have “opted in,” “requested this information” or some similar statement when you know that you have not intentionally done that? If you didn’t ask for these emails, how did they get your email address?
Do you click on the link to have your name removed from the mailing list? Or are you concerned that this will just signal to someone that there is indeed a real person using that email address and it will be sold to others for a higher price now that there is proof of a real person on the other end? How do you feel about all of the spam you receive and the people responsible for it?
Do you see the spam as the unfortunate side that must be endured in order for you to enjoy the benefits the Internet provides? Or is spam a flagrant violation of legal and ethical mores that only exists because there’s money to be made with little chance of getting caught?
