There's no such thing as "double opt-in."

A request from some unknown location comes to you.  That's not an 
"opting in" because it is unverified that that is actually the target 
person opting.

You send out a request that the person whose address was the target 
confirm the request.

Their reply to that is the *only* "opting in."  Anything before that is 
a random piece of data submission.

Calling it "double opt-in" accepts the spammer thesis that any address 
they capture by any mechanism is an initial "opting in."
