Yes, I've been seeing the same thing. It's usually just an irritation,
but I guess some day I'll hit a threshold and get unsubscribed from a
bunch of lists.

It would be nice if the mail indicated what that threshold is, so that
we know whether this is an immediate cause for concern. The FAQ merely
says "it depends" (with some details, but not enough to do an accurate
check), so perhaps the program that generates the mail is in a better
position to say.
