Geez, thanks. He quoted me in an article on the C&S problem long ago. 
I had a legitimate beef because my service provider dutifully kept

C&S did and I literally spent 2 hours unsubscribing from all of them.
I seem to remember that he quoted me as being really inconvenienced,
which is pretty much what happened to everyone else.
