My wife had a problem with a site like this, once. She joined a teacher's organization and she kept getting all sorts of offers from them. In this case, unsubscribe didn't work.

I solved the problem by using an SMTP app I wrote for such a purpose: it sends as many copies of an email as I wish, and very quickly. My message was as follows:

"I told you to unsubscribe me from your offers. If 100 requests isn't enough I can send a lot more.".

They sent a reply wherein they indicated their feelings were hurt - but they got the message and the email stopped.

It also has the ability to spoof return addresses, randomly generate them, slightly modify the title and content, etc., when one is of a mind to dole out punishment. You can always get an email from the WhoIs site of someone who can get their attention once you get theirs.
