it's not a question of "whose fault" -- rather one of effectiveness.


People need to take responsibility for what they do. It's the fault of the person that signed up.
If the person sighed up, they should know how to un - signup.
I"m on three or four of the suse lists and at least once a week some numb-nut sends in one saying "cancel me". Then this long thread starts of the same sh*t, every week. I didn't sign up just to enter in a conversation on how to unsubscribe to a list and it's the list mom's fault.... It's not. It's the person who can't follow directions...

It would be effective if people read the instructions when they signed up and/or the headers. Then again, that would require some thought on the persons behalf. No, it makes more sense to bother the rest of us with something we can't help them with anyway.

...I mean, it's not like this isn't brought up on most (if not all - or so it seems) of the suse lists about every *&^% week. Not to mention on some lists it happens every week like clock work. Didn't they get the list last week when we said all the same sh*t? If you are smart enough to sign up, you should be smart enough to cancel it. Just follow the directions. You know, the same directions you got when you signed up?

Maybe we should have a competency test for those who want to sign up? Someone else thought of that on another list. I'm starting to like the idea. On other lists the person sends threats back to the list. What a total dumb a**.

*You know - actually I would think differently if they sent a email and said, "hey guys, I know the first email said how to cancel this thing, but I don't remember how. Can someone please remind me?"
That would be different. That I would maybe understand.

 ... pissed off, tired and aggravated,

In the time spent composing responses to this thread, you could have written a program or script that automatically scans subject and body content for the word "unsubscribe" and sends the sender an email asking them, "hi, do you really want to unsubscribe? click here.".
