Prompted from https://wordpress.org/support/topic/getting-swamped-with-wordpress-org-emails-this-must-stop/

It seems that some people think "Subscribe" means something other than "email me things". We've gotten a number of posts in the forums where people are confused as to why they are suddenly getting bombarded with email. Invariably, they subscribed to a plugin forum. We tell them to click the unsub button and usually that's that.

But if people are unknowingly subscribing, then we should:

a) Adjust the wording to be more clear what's going on

b) Adjust the emails to have some form of unsubscribe link that actually works when clicked on from the email

Suggestions welcome. Patches also welcome.
