Ouch!  You managed to make at least three mistakes with this posting:

 1. This is not the list you can use to manage your subscription.  A 
    pointer to the directions to follow is available as a footer to all
    email sent from this list, among other places.  Please 
    see: <> for details.

 2. You quoted raw email addresses by including all the headers of the 
    message you chose to reply to.  In addition, you added your address 
    right in the body of your reply!  This is a bad idea for most email
    lists since it just feeds spammers.  This is an important fact to keep
    in mind.

 3. It's also considered bad netiquette to use a thread for a completely
    different topic.  The proper approach to say, ask how to unsubscribe if
    you can't figure it out, is to send a new message with a descriptive 
    subject to the list.  Obviously, you don't need to do this now since
    I've provided you the information you need in (1).
