I've been on several different lists, on and off, so I am not a newbie  
here.  And even then, unless I remembered, I probably wouldn't think  
of looking at the normally hidden headers.

Now when there is a footer added that says to unsubscribe, send a  
message to a specified address, it can be frustrating. But I guess it  
works, a list manager will probably remove the poster.
