I disagree. Look at his previous mails in the archive. His confusion is
genuine. Robert is where Karl was a year ago: confused. Let us help
Robert. he actually wants to unsubscribe, but he doesn't know or
understand how. Let's not create a second Karl, although I fear that it
has already begun:

According to
he has a disability, but he doesn't mention if it's a physical or a mental
disability. The fact that he has 5 grandchildren
points to an above average age. I'm NOT suggesting a mental deterioration
caused by old age, I think it's more something like technophobia and
difficulty in understanding new technology that he isn't grown up with.

If there is a mailing list moderator (CC are you reading this?), please
unsubscribe Robert. He has requested it multiple times.

Meanwhile I'm adding his email address to my /dev/null filter.
