If that's really the case then maybe the text on should be changed from:

    If you are on list foobaz, send a mail note to


    For example, if you've accidentally subscribed to the cygwin mail list,
    a mail note to

Alternatively, is it perhaps possible to configure ezmlm-idx to move the
information from the List-Unsubscribe to be included in the appended sig
like bit at the bottom? (It's a shame more email clients don't support the
list features.)

Also, maybe we should make it (a lot) harder to actually subscribe! How
about if to subscribe you had to answer a simple unix question?! This could
pre-emptively weed out some of the clueless users! ;-)
