I use Mail as supplied by Apple (after all, this is an iBook list)  
and this was the first I knew about the unsubscribe (and other)  
information in the mail headers. By default Apple's Mail only shows  
"From", "Subject", "Date", "To" and "Reply To".

With all due respect therefore, saying "look above" to people on this  
list using iBooks with Apple software will mean nothing. How about  
"Use 'View -> Message -> Long Headers' to show the headers of the  
message, then use the 'List-Unsubscribe' address given in the 27th  
header from the top"?
