I guess people don't pay attention! I guess mailing list footers are  
something to be ignored! :-) I run some of my own mailing lists and  
I've even put the exact unsubscribe instructions in the footer, and  
yet people still ask. Sometimes I'll get someone that'll send an  
unsubscribe request to my mailing list, and I'll respond back via the  
list address and ask "Did you try the instructions at the bottom of  
every email message first?" and I'll have 3 or 4 unsubscribes shortly  
thereafter. So, there was some others that wanted to ask or  
unsubscribe, but didn't notice the instructions. I don't know if it  
is information overload that causes folks to not notice the tools  
right in front of them or what.
