Hello Charles Marcus,

Am 2011-03-11 08:52:18, hacktest Du folgendes herunter:
1. Change the subject of the confirmation email.

Something like:

ACTION REQUIRED: You MUST CONFIRM your unsubscribe request from listname

This sound like "courier-mlm" which I use on my OWN system and it  force
peoples to put te word "yes" into the Subject: to subscribe.  :-D

Well, that's dumb, and we certainly don't want to make things harder, do
we... ;)

2. Don't require the user to REPLY to the email - include a clickable
LINK in the email they can click on to execute the unsub request.

Yeah, thats sound perfectly, because stupid users click on anything

lol... but seriously, lets avoid denigrating the users, shall we?

3. Considering that the vast majority - over 99% most likely - of users
who click on the current link actually want to unsubscribe, regardless
of how you personally feel about it, there really, really needs to be a
DIRECT unsub link in the footer.


Come one, that's ridiculous... the one has nothing to do with the other.
It's a matter of wasting time. Forcing 99% of the people who click that
link to have to do double the work to unsubscribe is just plain silly.


Best regards,
