How to Stop Spam from Quora?

From: andrew cooke <andrew@...>

Date: Tue, 24 Apr 2012 16:45:30 -0300

I used to use Quora.  I've kept my account in case it ever proves useful.  As
far as I can tell, I have disabled every option in the UI for email, yet I
still get spam from them once a week.

At the bottom of the spam is a link to unsubscribe.  I tried copying it to a
browser window and got nothing (it doesn't help that it's over 80 characters
long).  I tried opening the HTML email in w3m (a text-only web browser that
can be invoked from my text-only email reader) and it shows an unsubscribe
link, but then gives an error.

I realise this is Quora, and so (1) I should consider myself privileged to be
receiving things from them, common soul that I am, and (2) a simple
non-Javascript solution just wouldn't suffice, and (3) that they don't give a
fuck anyway as long as I don't affect their profit margins.  But.

Andrew
