I must admit that a few weeks ago, and being seriously T'd off by all the OT
stuff on the list, I tried to unsubscribe myself using that link at the
bottom of every posting to the list.
3 times I tried that, and got zilch.
I do keep all welcome messages to lists thankfully, and used the link.
This page has a Subsription/Unsubsription line which should be highlighted. A
click on that, and you move on to page 2. A few lines down on this page you
should see highlighted "subsription or unsubscription web forms". Ok click on
that. This now takes you to a page with all the mailing lists, and the
one/ones you are subscribed to will be highlighted. Click on "debian-user"
for example, and that takes you to a new page. Here you have a box for your
email address, and a "Subscribe", and "Unsubscribe" button. Enter your email
address, then click on "Unsubscribe". This worked for me, but I have since
resubscribed as the OT stuff seems to have died down.
I know there are a lot of folks that post to the list that don't have english
as their first language, but they've already been down the path I described
above, to subscribe to the list in the first place . It should not be too
difficult to go down the same path to unsubscribe.
There do seem to be some problems with that unsubscribe link at the bottom of
every posting from debian-user list though. I use Kmail, and that link would
not unsubscribe me.
This is not a rant, just an observation.
