An interesting column that points out that people who unsubscribe from mailing lists from individuals often upset those people. In order to avoid the resentment, the writer simply deletes messages from lists he doesn’t care about. His suggestion is that mailing lists should require a regular, polite “re-opt-in” policy so that those who find they’re no longer reading a certain mailing, are taken off the list without having to be proactive (and seemingly mean) about it.
