Spamming!!!

Usually in spam mail they provide a link to unsubscribe from the list, where either you need to reply the mail with the subject Remove or they will transfer to their site where they ask you to specify your email address and then they flash a msg that you will be removed from the list in 24or 48 hrs something like this.
How much fair deal is this, do they really unsubscribe you from the list or you are felling under their trap by giving them your email address.
Thanks for any comments

Do you ever watch those horror movies where the killer tricks the kids into going into the spooky old house? And you sit there screaming at the movie screen and not believing how stupid those kids are? It's sort of like that.

Welcome to javaranch Rick. I have your Java Tools book. In a stack of about 15 other books to read. But I am sure I will get to it.

sometimes we sign up for mail we dont really want and it looks like spam. in that case it is ok to unsubscribe but otherwise i agree with thomas.
