Received an email today from Bernie Fraser and Co (Australian Super).

Ok, I gave them my email address, so can't complain about receiving email.

But, buried in the html of their email ..

<a href=3D"http://tracking.involve.dload.com.au/?ci5jb20=3D">
<img=alt=3D"AustralianSuper" border=3D"0" 
<alt=3D"Mr Bernie Fraser - Independent Director and AustralianSuper 
=Investment Chair" src=3D"http://img.dload.com.au/involve/74/BF2.jpg">

And, not too keen about the above code in their email, normal or not. 

I did NOT give permission to track what happens to email they send me.

For eg, <href=3D"http://tracking.involve.dload.com.au/?ci5jb20=3D">

Sort of the same as paper junk-mail with an embedded RFID chip, reading
and broadcasting who-knows-what, to who-knows-whom, regards my property.

I don't care if 'tracking' email graphics are normal. Piss off, Bernie.

Should be illegal.
