Blogging about technology and randomness since 2002

Where did that come from?

Yesterday, I registered with so that I could reply to this topic about the ODP to clear up a few things (my posts are on page 3).
Today, it turns out I’m now subscribed to a daily HTML newsletter with links to new and interesting posts on the forum. This would be fair enough if:

  1. I’d actually asked to receive it (I didn’t, or don’t remember doing so)
  2. The emails weren’t over 50kb a piece

Fortunately there was an unsubscribe link (which I followed) and Thunderbird truncates messages larger than 50kb to save time. Of course, I used a different alias for any correspondance from them so that I can track where any further junk from them has come from.
