Would you rather that every one of those people email the list asking
what steps they have to take to get off?

Realistically, I believe the benefits of having it there outweigh the
negatives. While I understand that you don't agree with me, blindly
repeating your arguments will not change my mind. If you care that
deeply about it, you can either find someone else who'll listen to you,
find some new arguments, or take it up to the tech committee.
