rconner Posted January 8, 2010 Share Posted January 8, 2010 Got a note today from the American Water Works Association inviting me to a seminar. It was sent to my personal address (not my work address, which gets a lot of this stuff). My guess is that the addy was somehow taken from my professional engineering registration records, which are publicly accessible on the web. While unsubscribing, I noticed the following info on the unsub page: "You have already been opted-in to the system" I'm not quite sure I understand the nature of an "opt in" process that doesn't actually involve the opted-in party in the decision. Sorta like saying "we opted you in to buy us a pizza." My guess is that someone told their remailer (Blue Hornet?) that "opt in" was good, so they made sure to include the term in their mailings. -- rick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
