I personally see it the same as you do; If I didn't ask for it, it's spam
(and I certainly won't do business with these companies). 

But I believe you are correct that there is in fact no actual rule saying
they can't send unsolicited mail, only that they must provide an opt out,

Subject: [thelist] Can Spam Act of 2003

For years I've been operating under the belief that spam is unsolicited
(commercial) email and I thought the Can Spam Act of 2003 interpreted it
this way.

In my mind, all that proposal crap that you didn't sign up for that finds
its way into your inbox is, was or should be in violation of the Can Spam

I got a little curious earlier today and as I read deeper I see that it
doesn't state that they may not infiltrate your inbox, only that they must
comply with various, hard to enforce, rules which include providing an easy
opt-out mechanism.

Feedback? Interpretation?
