If I wind up on some mailing list and there isn't a very easy way to unsubscribe via link right in the email, I immediately and without guilt mark the mail as spam in my gmail.

I recommend everyone else do the same and if everyone did I think the fear of being put on gmail's global blacklist for spam would be a far more effective deterrent than the laws alone.

This is in fact the intent of Gmail's spam button design. Gmail's definition of spam isn't tailored to Federal law, it's "whatever messages our users are likely to mark as spam"
