While there is an informative email when you sign up, there are a couple issues with it. First,
as you said, people don't read instructions. Second, people forget. I would have to search
back to when I signed up for the list in order to find how to unsubscribe. Lastly, gmail and
many other apps provide a button that says "unsubscribe" which does little more than send
an email to the list. The latter is the reason I am suggesting that this be worked in as an
additional way to unsubscribe from the list.

I see the confusion on quite a few lists around the organization.  It's not rampant, but it
does happen.  Perhaps it would be a good idea to improve the communication somehow.  When
you first subscribe, you get a pretty informative email describing all of the things you can
do via email, but who reads instructions?!?! :). I wonder if infra could force a footer on
the emails or something.

I think the best course of action would be to bring this up to the powers that be to possibly
decide on supporting this functionality as a feature. This, of course, because this method
of unsubscribing from lists is pretty much standard now.
Im not sure the patronizing responses with Google links help at all.

Was the Google stuff really necessary? Couldn't you have just nicely told them how to unsubscribe?

You did not unsubscribe yet.

work better and spam less people.
