    Wow, the fact that you didn’t sign up for the email combined with the lack of an opt-out does leave much room for explanation from Palm, does it?

    It certainly makes the case for double opt-in. The sender has to give some way out for just these kind of scenarios.

    Perfect example of why anti-spam activists have been pushing for confirmed opt in for so many years. Best practices like confirmed opt in are good for the whole internet community, but marketers disengenuously slurred its name, calling it double opt in to make the process sound onerous, duplicative and unnecessary. They were only lying to themselves!
