My take on this is simple. The owner/maintainer / administrator of the list can implement
a filter where if the subject of the email has word "unsubscribe" . That email gets blocked
and sender gets automated reply stating that if you want to unsubscribe use the unsubscribe

Yes, I agree. We should accept people as they are.
So perhaps we should increase the hurdle to subscribe in the first place?
Something like adding a question like "What do you do if you want to unsubscribe from a mailing

That way the people who are lazy or need hand holding are simply unable to subscribe, thus
avoiding these people who send these "unsubscribe me" messages from ever entering the list.

Trained as an electrical engineer I learned again and again from my instructors: man is inherently
lazy. Maybe that's the case. Also, some people have complicated lives and need hand holding.
It is best to accept people as they are.

Actually, it's "capisce".

And, obviously, we are all here because we are learning. But, now that instructions have been
posted again - I would expect that people would not expect to have their
hands held to do something so simple as "unsubscribe". They are supposedly technologists.
I would think they would be able to do whatever research is necessary to
unsubscribe without flooding the list with requests. It's a fairly common operation for anyone
who has been on the web for a while.

Not rude at all. We were not born with any knowledge. We learn as we go. We learn by asking.

THANK YOU for posting this!!!! Very rude indeed to not learn for oneself - as opposed to expecting
to be "spoon fed" information like a small child.

Dear wished unsubscriber

Is it really that hard to start brain vX.X?

You or anyone which have used your email account, have subscribed to this list, as described


You or this Person must unsubscribe at the same way as the subscription was, as described


In the case that YOU don't know how a mailinglist works, please take a look here.


Even the month is young there are a lot of


in the archive.


I'm new to this list but from my point of view it is very disrespectful to the list members
and developers that YOU don't invest a little bit of time by your self to search how you can
unsubscribe from a list on which YOU have subscribed or anyone which have used your email

cheers Aleks

Best regards / Met vriendelijke groeten,
