I randomly ended up on a couple of mailing lists that do this. I have
not attempted to be removed from them. Mostly from fear of being added
to the ah-ha-this-address-works! list. I have just added them to my
.procmailrc file and trash the messages before I ever see them.
It's possible that the customers that _do_ care are just too jaded by
this kind of stupidity to even bother anymore. I'd be willing to bet
that if they bothered to _ask_ people for their preferences when they
harvest their addresses they would find that things are very different
from their assumptions.
I'm just glad I don't have to budget for and administrate the monster
mail system that they must to have to handle this load. :-)
