Yo, what about GDPR or similar laws? In the Europe this is not legal.
When GDPR started, I was thinking, oh not another cookie notification, but then I realized that it is kinda cool to ask people if they actually want to give away they details, not just take them. It is civilized thing to do.

I am not so familiar with US laws about privacy and spam but as I remember they can't send you anything until you submit your email, right?

We should stop this next level black-hat data scraping/stealing shenanigans!
