Let's talk about the use of the term "subscribe" when it applies to unsolicited emails.
I understand that it's a technically correct term. The email address is subscribed (by a filthy piece of shit spammer) to their "service", but it's not remotely relevant to how people use the term "subscribe". If I didn't come to you personally and say, "Please sir, may I have some useless irrelevant garbage clog up my inbox", then I'm not a fucking subscriber.
Thank you for coming to my Ted talk.
@saramg It's also interesting how the "unsubscribe" link in this context means "this e-mail is in use by a living person, please continue sending more spam to it, thank you".
