You know what I hate? Web services adding one more preference for mail notifications and enabling it by default. Regularly, I start receiving mails although I take pride into disabling *every* single notification.

I look at you @facebook and @LinkedIn. But you are not alone.

@ploum @facebook You are right. Unfortunately, they don't give a s**t. Either the user will accept the notifications (many don't even know you can turn them off), or he will unsubscribe. And for the very very small minority who will close the account: they are not even a loss, because they are not good quality for sale anyway.
Users such as you or me are not really interesting for facebook, linkedin & other companies selling user's data.
