Are you sure you wish to unsubscribe?

I have a bit of a zero tolerance when it comes to unsubscribing – if there’s no immediate option (i.e. either no option at all or only one that involves emailing them) then they get the SPAM button.

B&Q, thankfully, do have an immediate option (I’m not sure why I started getting emails from them – I reserved some items recently, but didn’t make any request for them to start emailing me as a result). However, I was met with the following message…

Now, that’s a lot of asterisks’. That email could be anything (and as it’s my own domain I could have a number of similiar email addresses set up – none of which may be distinguishable). Besides, why does it need to be covered up – other sites don’t do this?
