One-click unsubscription is now an RFC Email

In September I wrote about a proposal to allow one-click unsubscriptions from mailing lists without user interaction.

After taking a rather tortuous path through the IETF, it's now been issued as RFC 8058. The changes since September are quite minor, mostly tightening up some details to prevent various attacks from fake unsub requests.

Now that it's official, I expect email service providers will start implementing it, and we'll have an arguably better alternative to mail feedback loops to tell mailers when their mail is unwanted.
