Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
Actually I believe in this case I removed it because there was no answer. If a question gets reported (for whatever reason) and a week has passed by, it is unlikely the question will be answered and we remove it.
I have a tradition, Don't Turn The PC On for Christmas day. Fine one day without email etc. ... Realised it's not what it once was as my phone gets emails/farcebook updates. Other news had an interview on the 23rd (still trying to get out of the PUB) which was quite good, the upside was the agent hadn't edited my CV too badly and left the link to the article I wrote which the interviewer had read and liked so :fingercrossed: (nuts) I'm off for a drink now...
I just unsubscribed (AGAIN) from paypal junk mail, and the unsubscribe page said it would take 10 days to take affect. Why does it take 10 days? It's all done by computers. This is f*ckin' absurd.

Well ... if I was a cynical old fart - and I am - I'd suspect it's so that:
1) They can continue to send you adverts for another week and a half, and you might buy something.
2) They can hope that you forget and continue sending you rubbish for even longer.
Or the "unsubscribe" code is running on an Amstrad 1640...
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

Developers implemented quick update to actually remove it from persisted data.
QA validated update (ticket #1)
QA a week later (month later) noted that email still said 10 days. Open new ticket or bug.
Ticket went to triage.
Product owners prioritized for next sprint, but with low priority.
Ticket fell off that sprint
Prioritized twice more and fell off twice more.
Now ticket is way down list
Product owners forgot about it (back log is hundreds of thousands of tickets.)
QA sees same problem every couple of months, but search finds open ticket, so they leave it.
Variations of the above, but all based on product owners prioritizing it low and then it getting forgotten.
