  Why the hell can't AOL integrate the standard listserv commands integrated
  into many subscription emails into a friggin' button in their email
  client, right next to "Spam" (or even in place of it) that says

  I realize it could be used badly if globalized, but if AOL got off their
  duff and vetted some of the higher volume truly honest subscription
  emailers and allowed their emails to activate the Spam->Unsub button, it
  might save everyone some headaches.
