mailchimp

Only problem is… after years of protecting internet users from unwanted newsletter subscriptions, MailChimp has had a change of heart.

Last week it quietly (I only found out by logging into my account, I never – ironically – received an email advisory from them) revealed that it would be switching its customers’ mailing lists to “single opt-in” rather than “double opt-in”… More here.

There is only one reason to do this and it isn’t a good one.
