Le Monde’s Unsolicited Subscription Offer:

Le Monde’s Unsolicited Subscription Offer: Olivier Travers writes about the unsolicited subscription offer he got from Le Monde, France’s biggest newspaper. He had used the site’s free forums, and the company thought it was OK to send subscription offers, even though he had opted out of commercial offers when he initially registered.
