Confused Google doesn’t understand email preferences

As if to prove my point about lies, Google spammed me right after my last post. In its footer:
 

 

No, I didn’t. I logged into Google to see my settings. Sure enough:
 

 
As I always say, when it comes to computers, I’m right, they’re wrong. I have a better memory.

I unsubscribed:
 

 
But I’m not signed up to ‘News and tips’. Not on any menu. Remember, Google? What’s the point of managing my preferences when you don’t know how to use them?
 

 

Basically, they’ll spam you when they want regardless of what your settings are.

Where’s the accountability here? Or are they desperate to shore up things now that the US Department of Justice has suddenly discovered it has some balls to take them on in an antitrust case?
