Like Alice, I have wondered the same thing from time to time. I don't read
a lot of lists, but, I've never seen one where so many people get
subscribed apparently unwillingly and then have no clue how to get
unsubscribed--especially when you get an acknowledgement when you
subscribe that contains explicit instructions on how to leave the list.

The recent spate of postings is unusual but I think we've had episodes
like this before, if memory serves.
