Unsubscription Links, Bad Webmonkey

This is really irritating to see in the footer of an email:

You are currently subscribed to %%list.name%% as: %%emailaddr%%.
To unsubscribe click here: %%url.unsub%%
or send a blank email to %%email.unsub%%

If you are at all familiar with the CAN-SPAM Act (and you should be) you should know that this is, in fact, a violation of that act.

Not only should you always provide a way to unsubscribe or opt-out, but it is a requirement by the CAN-SPAM Act. Someone's Webmonkey needs to fix what is broken.
