While it is obvious that there are 4 possible choices for a 
"report/unsubscribe" dialog, they only consider 3 of them. The fourth 
is dealt with in the bottom paragraph on that page:

   Update (1:50pm): If you want to unsubscribe without reporting the
   message as spam, click "show details" in the top-right corner of the
   message, then click "Unsubscribe from this sender."

"From this _sender_", the ambiguity of it!
