Subject RE: How to unsubscribe (was Re: unsubscribe)
Date Thu, 30 Aug 2012 05:35:01 GMT
Thanks for your understanding and helping me to succeed in unsubscribing
from this mailing list though I am not sure at this point of time when would
that event is likely to happen. 

 

Yes of course it was the same email. I also don't want to expose my other
email ID's to hadoop or similar clones.

 

 

If only I can get some likelihood data of similar users of this mailing list
who after trying to get unsubscribed got unsubscribed at some point of time
after repeated mailing to unsubscribe. 

Once that data is available it should be possible to develop the most
probable number of mail I may have to send before getting unsubscribed.
Using the likelihood data and applying students 't' distribution and with
confidence limits at 99%, 97%, 95% and 90% i should be able to predict, i
getting logged off from hadoop unless otherwise the probable value does not
become the real one in my case. 

 

Regards,

Nicely done.

 

This seems to indicate that there might be a bug in the mailing list
management configuration.  Not sure how that would happen with exmlm, but it
seems more plausible.

 

One last question, though, is the email address that you sent the
unsubscribe requests from the same as the mailing list sends to?

 

Also, you should only need to reply to the confirmation email.  But was the
email you got back from the bot a confirmation of unsubscribe email?

I sent to user-unsubscribe@hadoop.apache.org in the beginning. 

 

Followed by that I mailed to the links that the automatic mail sends in
vain.

 

Later I thought of all possible permutations that are possible using the 15
alphabets and once character that is in the email address of
user-unsubscribe. While deciding the permutations combinations to ensure
that i don't miss any, I even sent to those permutations of email ID's that
do not have any literal meaning in English language. 

 

In the address the alphabet 'u' repeated 3 times, 'r' repeated 2 times, 's'
repeated 3 times 'e' repeated 2 times 'b' repeated 2 times and rest 1 time.
So i used the classical method of solving such combinations using the
methods given in Higher Algebra by Hall and Knight published first in 1897
to arrive at the all possible permutations using the formula 

 

!16/ (!3 !2 !3 !2 !2 ) 

 

Then using mail merge i sent email to all the email ID's generated. 

 

But no success so far. 

 

I also tried some keywords to block mails but that led to more chaos.

 

Fe important email ID's of my boss, wife, etc. were also blocked leading to
consequences that have potential to affect me. 

 

Hence have decided to live with mails from user@hadoop.org and enjoy!!! till
all users of hadoop start blocking my email ID and organizers of hadoop also
block me specially io their mailing list. 

 

 

 

user-unsubscribe@hadoop.apache.org

Can you say which addresses you sent emails so?

 

The merging of mailing lists may have left you subscribed to a different
group than you expected.  Thus, your assumptions may not match what is
required.  If you provide a specific list, somebody might be able to help
you.

 

Also, I was asking about the *exact* email address listed in the one message
before mine, not anything you have typed.  Sorry to not trust that your "all
permutations and combinations" may not be correct, but any generation of
permutations is based on assumptions and you don't state your assumptions.
By their nature, we often don't even know our own assumptions so I would ask
the same question even if you said what you thought your assumptions are.

 

The reason that I ask this in this slightly abrasive way is that there may
have been a bug in the mailing list merge.  The only way to distinguish that
from a bug in your permutation generation is to inspect the list of email
addresses you used.

 

It may also be that your email from the mailing list has been forwarded so
that the return address when you send email to the bot isn't one that is
subscribed.

That was a stupid joke.  It wasn't real advice.

 

Have you sent email to the specific email address listed?

I have tried every trick to get self unsubscribed. Yesterday I got a mail
saying you can't unsubscribe once subscribed.

Hi folks,

Replying to this thread is not going to get you unsubscribed and will just
annoy everyone else who's subscribed. To unsubscribe please send an email to
user-unsubscribe@hadoop.apache.org from your subscribed address.

For more info please visit

Thanks,
-andy
