Because so many people were made to join this mailing list without
being asked first.

Lots of us were on totally different mailing lists but were just
subscribed to the user@hadoop.apache.org without being asked. But that
mailing list has been subsumed into the all purpose user one.

It is. For instance I was reading common-user@hadoop.apache.org and my
mail program filters were using that string specifically.


Someone also commented on being able to read. Well I can look at this
email and it is NOT obvious how to unsubscribe especially to a list
they didn't join in the first place.
