When you want some bad publicity just send some spam and you'll get all you need.
For starters, I'm not in any opt-in, double opt-in or any other kind of bullshit spam list unless someone stuck my name in there. I despise spam so whatever excuse they make about how they sent me this spam is a FUCKING LIE whatever it is so don't even bother trying to post excuses if you read this as I NEVER signed up, no way, no how, not possible, and you spamming morons can kiss my big fat white hairy ass.
It appears this email came from some SPAM operation called DesertWalls hosted on Interland.
Interland.Return-Path:This is 1&1's bullshit ad:
Received: from desertwalls.com (22.214.171.124)
From: "eMarketing" <SPAMMING_FUCKWADS@desertwalls.com>
Subject: Exclusively from the World's Largest Web Host
The ad was originally loaded from:
http://126.96.36.199/1and1ad4.jpgWhen you clicked the ad it went to a tracking script:
http://desertwalls.com/t/xxxxx/xxxxxWhich was redirected here:
http://order.1and1.com/xml/order/HostingHomeWhich is owned by 1&1:
domain: 1and1resources.comDon't know if this was one of their affiliates and I really don't fucking care but it looks like 1&1 sent the email as this was at the bottom:
registrant-organization: 1&1 Internet Inc.
registrant-street1: 701 Lee RD
registrant-street2: Suite 300
If you no longer wish to receive messages from 1&1 Internet, please send a blank email with the single word "Unsubscribe" in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make your mark on the web with 1&1, the only web hosting company trusted by over 5 million people worldwide.If 1&1 didn't send it then it would be too obvious they had an issue with the affiliate when all the unsubscribe requests started pounding their server, so it's probably them.
So take your webhosting service and shove it up your spamming ass.
