> MailChimp should add a feature IMO where if somebody uploads an email address of people opting out that this person will be blacklisted from further using MailChimp.

That would be the easiest way to eliminate spam from MailChimp's platform. Also probably the quickest way to eliminate a vast majority of their paying customers.

I‘d even pay for a feature where I would get an email from MailChimp whenever my E-Mail-Address is added to their database.

Unfortunately, not as much as the collective number of people who are willing to pay to send you an email through their platform.

Maybe a Honeypot approach would work here.
