Does anyone at all seriously believe that if you do NOT return a confirmation that they can continue collecting personal information about you, then they will immediately STOP doing so?
Haha. If caught, they will tell that "We haven't received the confirmation yet, but we expect it any day now, so to make sure that no info is lost, we save it. But we promise, really promise, that we will not make use of the info until we receive the confirmation, and that will be any day now..."
Oh, Nega-Coin a Bitcoin derivative, you say?

So I go to the site and the company makes it extremely difficult to find a place to respond since I haven't clicked their link
That's becoming a general trend, comapanies hiding their email address.
They want you to call the help line, and get stuck in a queue for a long time (with the usual sh*t muzac and "your call is important"), only to talk to somebody in a completely different country with no authority to accept your feedback anyway.
I don't really understand your general safety principle. Do you use an e-mail program that doesn't show where a link goes on hover? If you can see that the link points to the expected domain, in this case stackoverflow.com, is there any reason to trust it less than if you find the link on their page after having manually typed stackoverflow.com in your browser? Or do you not click on links in general?
