24 years ago today, Linus Torvalds announced the first-ever release of a special project we now call Linux. Please join us in celebrating its anniversary. Time flies when you're having fun, collaborating, and changing the world!

Only 28 times? It seemed like a lot more than that.

Ugh. I despise systems that allow others to register your email for anything.

GitHub - today I'm looking at you. 

For some reason (probably just courtesy) people end up giving me write access to their github repositories. These people probably don't even realize that that makes GitHub spam me with their repo data, their commit notifications etc. I assume they do it as a gesture of "hey, I trust Linus with my repo", knowing full well that I won't actually do anything, but doing it as a funny courtesy.  I can't really blame them for the gesture.

But I can blame GitHub for turning that gesture into a source of spam.

Sure, the emails are easy to delete (and I do - sorry guys, I get too much email as-is), but it's an example of a deep flaw in the system. Letting others sign you up for things is really very annoying.

I shouldn't need to unsubscribe to things I don't need filling up my inbox: you should check at registration point whether the email is willing and able to be contacted.

I'd much rather get  the occasional email saying "So-and-so has invited you to watch his repo xyzzy, please follow this link to activate, or ignore this email if you aren't interested". That kind of verification email I do not mind at all, because it shows that the service understands about this whole opt-in and email verification issue. It would also just be a once-per-repo thing.

Of course, GitHub is by no means the only offender. Lots of places are perfectly fine taking any random email address and registering that email address to their mailing lists etc, with no verification of "do you actually own that email" at any point.  

I generally mark all such email as spam. Because if you have a mailing list that allows others to sign up as me, you aren't a mailing list - you're an internet menace and a spam provider. If you are running a mailing list, please check that your subscription process has that kind of verification stage. Ok?
