The billion dollar unsubscribe link

Adam Silver silver is a "contract interaction designer with a strong technical background" and a savvy blogger, who just figured out something that I've known for a while: One-click unsub is a bad idea. I don't fault him for being new to the party -- you don't know, until you know. And he frames the problem in a new context: links are for navigation, buttons are for actions. It's a good way to look at it. Link to a form page, require a button push to unsubscribe, and thus, evade security link scanning that causes false positive unsubs.

It seems so simple to me.
