The rule in the subject line is described as "Habeas Accredited
Opt-In or Better". That is not double Opt-In. If Habeas is not
responding to complaints sent to complaints@habeas.com, then it may
be better to set the current score for that test from -4.3 to 0.

1. Streamsend requires their users to abide with CAN-SPAM
2. An unsubscribe link is required but double opt-in is not.
3. The domain information in Whois is hidden by a privacy service.

Would you whitelist such a domain?
