We were single opt in until Klez hit and now we're double opt-in which,
though good, can have its disadvantages, such as autoresponder loops.
On Wednesday, I checked my mail one last time before heading out for a
bit.  I got home a few hours later and checked it to find 2200+
messages!!  What  happened was this:  Klez munged the addy of a
company's employment submission addy and sent it to my subscribe addy.
My subscribe addy sent a confirmation request.  Other addy sent a *thank
you for your resume letter* WITHOUT the confirmation in the subject
line.  My addy sent a confirmation request..... and so on.  I had to ban
it and then it took me many hours to go through and manually check the
boxes and remove these requests from my system.

Anyhow, I guess the whole point of this is that I take valuable time
away from my family to keep track of sub/unsub requests because of the
Klez and to keep from being accused of spamming.  When Klez mungs a
personal addy, I manually unsubscribe them even though they're shown as
pending.  When Klez mungs a confirm addy, YG, Topic, Lyris, or other
obviously non-subscriber addy, I'll ban it to prevent it from happening
again.  All this takes time and I've only in the past few months had to
resort to such drastic measures.
