Thank you Caitlin, that actually addresses the problem, and I think that will 
be a significant improvement. It would also be nice if I didn’t have to opt out 
of something I don’t think I ever opted into.

I can appreciate that the text on the page seems vague in terms of defining to 
what list the opt-out will apply. We're going to edit the header on the page to 
specifically say "Fundraising email". I hope that helps clarify for other 
donors on multiple Wikimedia lists.
