Google Drive Has a Serious Spam Problem, But Google Says a Fix is Coming

Here’s the scenario: a spammer (or anyone else) shares a file or folder with you. This file or folder immediately shows up in the “Quick Access” area of your Drive, as well as in the “Shared with you” section. You can’t stop this from happening—you don’t have to accept the share; it shows up whether you want it or not.

Since there’s no way to remove yourself from the share, you’re stuck with it.

How could one even come up with such a "feature" in the first place? Access control is something essential for both sides.
