I think there will be less room for misunderstanding if the instructions

To UNSUBSCRIBE, send an email to debian-user-request@lists.debian.org.
Put "unsubscribe" in the Subject header. Trouble? Contact

This way we emphasize the not-so-obvious fact that by Subject we mean an
email header and not the content of the email. I can always say, for
example, that the subject (lower caps) of this email is about making the
debian-user unsubscribe instructions clearer. But the Subject, as it is,
is "Re: Unidentified subject!"
