Subject RE: Unsubscribe trailers

Tail-gating on this so I mention it somewhere at least.

One problem that I have noticed, and I don't know how systematic it is, is that when a post
uses HTML formatting, the list robot may not provide the trailer in a form that actually has
it be visible to a recipient.

This has led, in the past, to users being dissed by other users for not paying attention to
footers that, in fact, they don't see.  (It's one of those "works for me" disconnects.)  

One action I can take is to request that list moderators on projects I support provide the
level of civility exhibited by Mark Thomas and simply honor unsubscribe requests and confirm
it to the list.  I will do that too.

I am acting on the practice now.  What the robot/archiver does is beyond me.
