It sent me spam, telling me to sign up for spam. If I chose to opt out, I see I am already opted out of everything. This notice was to tell me I wasn't signed up for anything.
Bad chowhound, Bad!
I've noticed the CNET logo on the bottom of each page - is that new? Is that the reason we are getting spammed?
