Karl, we weren't really talking about if the system is good, that was
a side comment of Res'. We are trying to explain that you are the only
person, besides some malicious person, that can remove the user from
this mailing list is the user who is subscribed.
Just go to the link, or learn how to remove from the mailing list itself.
The method doesn't matter, but it is simpler for someone to grasp
removing yourself from the mailing list by going to the website.
