Have you ever unsubscribed from one spam related email only to find yourself inundated with countless more later on? Extensiontech has done an Investigative Report on Why You Shouldn't Always Unsubscribe From Emails This may save you some spam in the long run.

This all started from me being spammed by some "Online Adult Dating Service" spam email. Of course my Spam Assassin caught it, and labeled it appropriately though. I guess I just had some weird inclination to go look around. No, no, not at the dating service, but at the website. You see, the website was buried in some folders, and just seemed odd to me. It only took me a minute or two, and I then realized there was no index file on the root of the web server. You know what that means don't you?
