Spam from Dell via; or Why Opt-Out Is Still Bad.

I just got a spam from, using I’m blocking the scum at And reporting it to Dell just in case it’s not really from them. Someone else got this as well. Searching through my mail logs shows I’m also getting other messages from, regarding CareerTrack.

Any time a user has to do anything to stop getting stuff he didn’t ask for, it’s spam. Period. If can show to me proof that I signed up for this, fine. But they can’t. Therefore it’s spam and illegal.
