Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Bart De Vos shared a link to the SE newsletter page:

http://stackexchange.com/newsletters/54685/1129940053?code=555e60701591569ee92f9fb88c9a2cf49bdf25c9237d0da88ea7aff8145a72ce&confirmed=serverfault.com&day=tuesday

Oops! He shared his confirmation link.

I got the message: "Thank you for signing up for the Stack Overflow Newsletter! You will receive the newsletter every Tuesday." which is a little confusing as it subscribed him, not me.

I then proceeded to sign him up for the Christianity and German Language Newsletters by clicking the 'Subscribe' button after opening up the link in a private browsing window.

HAX!

Good LOLs

There are 78 Stack Exchange sites. I predict that Bart will have a lot of email to read shortly... – Wesley Jan 24 '12 at 19:11

Also, you can edit the day (&day=dayofweek), why is that? Does it mean I'll be getting my Japanese Language and Usage Newsletter on monday now? – Bart De Vos Jan 24 '12 at 19:19

This is by design: manage-your-newsletters links are like manage-your-craigslist-post links – they shouldn't be shared.

(We have, however, disabled the particular link shared in this question, to prevent further any further unwanted changes to Bart De Vos's subscriptions.)

He'll probably be happy to hear that :) – MikeyB Jan 27 '12 at 2:13
    
Thanks :-) Let the unsubscribing begin. – Bart De Vos Jan 27 '12 at 8:35
