I have yet to hear of any removal site that passes the simple
test of setting up a new email account and submitting it to an
op-out list.  That account will start receiving spam within
hours.  For most spammers, there is no incentive to honor an an
op-out list.  They could care less if they piss off a thousand
people as long as one person in a thousand buys the product.
