OK. I have unset the ack thing now for both you guys. I suppose you checked
"Receive acknowledgement mail when you send mail to the list?" to
"YES" while subscribing and hence the issue. It *should* not happen

And the Boxbe guy has been unsubscribed. The same shall happen in the
future. If unsolicited mails enter, the admin shall unsubscribe the
address (without informing the sender or the list). Includes the
admins who make such mistakes sometimes as well ;-)
