From meilinglam@live.com Fri Sep 16 02:34:08 2011

From: Mei-Ling Lam <meilinglam@live.com>
To: "me@my_isp.net" <me@my_isp.net>
Subject: Mei-Ling Lam's Favorites & Email Confirmation
I have no idea who Mei-Ling Lam is. And I don't want to know.
But I do want to know why I'm on her mailing list.
I don't care what she wants.
Please click here to confirm or edit your contact details
I'm not about to do that.
IMPORTANT: Please be sure to add the email address (meilinglam@live.com) to your safe senders list to ensure that you get their messages every time.
My email software doesn't have a "safe senders list".
And I don't want to get "their" messages. Ever.
(And it's "her", not "their". She's not plural. Nor royalty. (At least, I don't think she's royalty. I don't know who she is.) Even if she were royalty, we wouldn't refer to her in the plural; she'd refer to herself in the plural.)
Here are some things that Mei-Ling Lam currently likes and wants to share with you...

I don't tweet, either. And  I don't trust Facebook.
As a member of Mei-Ling Lam official mailing list, you will receive all the latest news and information from Mei-Ling Lam's on releases, tours, contests and much more.
I gather from the above that she is a Playboy Bunny. Is that sufficient grounds to hold contests and tours?
This list is powered by FanBridge, the world's leading provider of fan relationship management services for artists.
Is she an artist or a Playboy Bunny?

You people have got to start using confirmation responses before you enroll people.
You can't put addresses on mailing lists just because someone gives them to you. It makes you a spammer.
