Re: [suse-security] please unsubscripe

You'd think that users subscribing to a list dealing with linux 
security can at least read. They must be able, because they did 
follow instructions to subscribe.
If, for some weird reason, someone is not able to see the header of 
the emails one is receiving, the footer, which ALL emails from this 
list have and which EVERYBODY can see, states:
<quote>
For additional commands, e-mail: suse-security-help@xxxxxxxx
<unquote>

If you actually DO this, you get a very friendly ezmlm response, which 
contains, in the BODY of the email, the following:
<quote>
You can start a subscription for an alternate address,
for example "john@xxxxxxxxxxx", just add a hyphen and your
address (with '=' instead of '@') after the command word:
    <suse-security-subscribe-john=host.domain@xxxxxxxx>

To stop subscription for this address, mail:
    <suse-security-unsubscribe-john=host.domain@xxxxxxxx>
<unquote>

Now this MAY be a bit too complex for some, but fortunately the email 
continues:
<quote>
To remove your address from the list, just send a message to
the address in the ``List-Unsubscribe'' header of any list
message. If you haven't changed addresses since subscribing,
you can also send a message to:
   <suse-security-unsubscribe@xxxxxxxx>
<unquote>

There you are. Two methods of unsubscribing. Exactly what is "user 
unfriendly" about this? 

Cheers,
Richard
