Thread: "unsubscribe" [ADMIN]

Definitely can do that here;  Of course, the posters who don't trim the
repeated cascade of PICList FAQ references off the bottom of their
posts, would tend to get flamed eventually for not doing so;  Thinking
about it, though, there are frequent enough posts about how to unsub
here, and, we all joined the list with the quite explicit understanding
that we were to keep the "Welcome!" post we were sent when we joined,
that told us how to unsubscribe, as we might want to read it some day -
someone who WANTS to be personally responsible, can be and will be.
Those few who choose NOT to honor the (hard to enforce) agreement they
joined this list on, though, can distract the rest of us from being

(I am *not* including the "Help - my ISP changed names overnight, what
do I do!" problems, here - Those happen, and, if you didn't know in

having an admin. send a change command in for you.  It's the "Oh, I'm
still on the list, I'll send another Unsubscribble command, my 10th, why

sue again - taking no personal responsibility, though.  Those, it's just
easier to either ignore, or to just delete, I'm not sure which is

I deleted Joe, so we can move on here.

I've seen posts asking to unsub on another list I'm on which has the
footer saying, "Want to subscribe/unsubscribe?  Jump to
http://blah.blah".  Simply Amazing, to me;  How can they figure out how
to open the 'Fridge to eat?  <G>  These people can read a PIC Datasheet
and make sense of it?  <G>

(Yeah, I'm grumpy, have an appointment I forgot in a couple hours, it's
damn inconvenient!  Arrgh.  ANYTHING but a dental appointment, today!
I'll be decked all day, drat.)
