Search400 has no affiliation with NEWS/400 whatsoever. It's put out by the 400Group. Perhaps you're confusing it with Source/400, which NEWS/400 does own. However, Source/400 never spams anyone to my knowledge.

Nah, I just boycott all sites associated with News/400, I like
Midrange.com and Midrangecomputing.com better anyway even without the
false hope of a t-shirt. If enough people were to suddenly drop
subscription to News/400 with a letter explaining why, that would hit
harder than a law suit because you would be denying them future revenue
from both subscription and advertising.
