Today, for the first time, I was emailed the Giant Bomb Crew newsletter, featuring Jan. Only issue is I never asked for it, or intentionally signed up. I sure didn't touch a thing regarding my Giant Bomb account in many, many months.
It even came with a GBoptin@ sender address. I most certainly did not opt in.
Now, I'm not upset or anything, and realize there's an Unsubscribe link at the bottom, which, again intentionally, I did not try clicking. Honestly, I mostly was too lazy / perplexed to sign up in the first place. An email newsletter?! Like what the hell, in this century?
In the end I'm mostly curious if it's a bug that I got signed up for the newsletter without my asking, or an intentional change to drive up subscriber numbers?
