Another clever way to prevent opt-out

Here's another clever way for spammers to keep spamming you.  Legally they have to include a way to opt out, usually via a link at the bottom of the email.  As I wrote a few days ago, sometimes those links cleverly look like phish attempts, so anti-phish measures block them.

Today I got one I could actually click, and did so. It seems the unsubscribe page was (accidentally, I'm sure) so badly written as to crash the browser!  Outstanding!
