As someone who has been both management and a tech geek, I disagree
slightly about management with charisma alone. I agree with the
sentiment that someone who is in charge of a technical security portion
cannot figure out how to unsubscribe from a list. 

Anyone random having issues, I'd understand but the very thing that
should represent the profession  belies the strangeness of the OP's
request. Of all things he should know, this isn't the hardest...  A
cursory google search would have told how to unsubscribe.

Kinda troubling I agree.
