Hi Glen,

Thanks for the analysis.  I guess my point was that people (Arup) should
fully understand the issue at hand BEFORE flaming someone.  I knew exactly
what Leon was asking, without much effort.  I would imagine that Arup simply
perused the message without giving it much thought (he was busy, distracted,
etc.).  I do agree there are those who would rather have someone else to
their dirty work (unsubscribing).  However, even reprimanding someone for
being lazy can be done a little gentler.  There have been, and always will
be, new and lazy people on this list.  It’s the nature of the beast.  Simply
stated, anger and rage really don’t help anything.

Let's not turn this into a can of worms.  It can go away peacefully now.

Arup misunderstood Leon's message and thought he lazily wanted others to
unsubscribe him.  That was his main error.  But in fairness to Arup,
flames can be called for when people ask to be unsubscribed from a
technical mailing list that 1000's of other people are subscribed to.

People making such requests are usually either newbies who need to be
jolted (and also thereby jolting/informing other newbies about to make
the same request, keeping the ML free of additional requests), or by
rather lazy people who know how to unsubscribe but don't want to bother.
  The latter type might actually feed on the "kid glove" approach that
David may be inclined to recommend.
