Newsletter un-subscription

Most newsletters are spam and they have decided to mail you when you haven’t really subscribed for it. When you click on the unsubscribe link in the mail, rather than taking you off the list, they have these bunch of questions wanting to know the reason.

Am waiting for – one letter from your great grandfather’s pet’s name, one drop of blood, one shot of tequila to be added to make it even more secure.
