Why? Much more fun to shout at people and demand they do something :-(

Seriously though, this whole business of 'why am I getting these emails' 
or 'please unsubscribe me' is a singularly long-standing annoyance to 
those who're here for the more technical meat. The OO users list 
historically has been inundated with meta-junk like this followup 
(sorry!!), rather than the intended proper discussion material. I've 
even known the list to be mail-bombed in protest by someone who couldn't 
be bothered to unsubscribe himself.

This list is about the only one I subscribe to; is the irrational 
behaviour peculiar to OO list[s], or are other mail lists similarly 

And given that some people seem pathologically incapable of reading, 
much less following, simple instructions, has anyone a cure?
