I have put a couple of "THIS MACHINE HAS NO BRAIN, PLEASE USE YOURS (IF PROVIDED)"
stickers in places where I had to jump in and repair something
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Self realization: if I was annoyed this much, why would I want to put up with it at all?
For those of you who may wonder (maybe there's one?), here's what comes of checking the don't send anything option (which is, interestingly, pre-checked). It begs a question I always have with email based solicitation: they can put you on a mailing list immediately but it takes several day to get off of it. It's not like the email's already in an envelope or something. Aside from hoping there will be a change of heart if you get further annoyed, why is this so?

Probably not (they can afford their own) - but even if so, how long does it take to update the mail contractor's database? They certainly get you into it pretty damn quickly !
Sometimes credit card companies would send some pseudo-checks in the envelope with the bill. I call and demand they never do it again as I will accept neither the hassle nor liability if it the mail is stolen and the checks are used. They tell me it may take weeks. I inform the that as of "this current communication" I am informing them that I take no responsibility or liability for the checks if they are used - under absolutely any circumstances whatsoever, without any exception, without recourse on their part or on their behalf. Once I used that technique then I never see them again. They just need to be motivated.
CYA for if a message sent before the unsubscribe is temporarily stuck in the aether, and will successfully be retried and delivered tomorrow.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
