Spam Email Footers

I don't want the spamilicious email.  I'm trying to actually unsubscribe.

The footer says "If you are not the intended recipient, you are hereby notified that any dissemination, distribution or copying of any information contained in or attached to this communication is strictly prohibited. If you have received this message in error, please notify the sender immediately and delete the material from any computer."

I don't feel like the intended recipient because it's just irrelevant junk.  Perhaps you should not have disseminated, distributed, copied or sent me this.  Wouldn't that have been simpler? Keep it to yourself?

I also think I've received the message in error.  Since I don't want the damn thing. And that means that I have to delete it?  Why can't you stop sending it?  Wouldn't that be simpler for both of us?
