1)  We have never received any such notice.  I was one of the MM 
list-owners the first and second times this came around.

2)  Opt-out is wrong.  It might, possibly, be not too terribly wrong if 
that were the only thing they did/do wrong, but unfortunately it's just 
the nth instance of them doing something wrong.
