TAKE ME OFF MAIL LIST.

Why is it some people have no trouble finding their way
onto a list, but can't be bothered finding their own way off?
The following appears on the list info page, the link to which
is appended to most of the messages here:
"To unsubscribe via e-mail, send an e-mail to
homeroast-request
and type in the subject line unsubscribe.
Most e-mail clients configured correctly with
your web browser will set this up automatically
if you Click Here"

restraining his normal impulse on account of
being a newbie here)

Owen,
With more and more caffeine you will learn to be more and more testy.
Welcome!

Owen I always think it's humorous that they can't even be bothered to ask
politely for help.  But demand that we take them off,  like it was us that
got them on in the first place!  It would seem that they are too important
to help themselves, but we who have nothing better to do with out small
lives should just jump to do their bidding.  I usually just laugh and hit
delete- if they seem to be nice people I will send them a kind email off
list, but only if they are asking nicely for help.

So I take it that it's considered bad form to send them 200 e-mail
copies of the "Welcome to the homeroast list" message that they got
when they joined in the first place?  ;>)
Actually, it's Tom's fault.  His welcome message doesn't say "NOTE!!!
DO NOT DELETE THIS MESSAGE!!!  IT CONTAINS INFORMATION ON HOW TO POST
AND UNSUBSCRIBE TO THE MAILING LIST YOU JUST JOINED AND THEREFORE MAY
BE USEFUL TO YOU AT SOME PRESENTLY UNFORESEEN POINT IN THE FUTURE!!!"
If it did, you see, this wouldn't happen.  The fact that it happens on
every other mailing list I've ever been on, despite the welcome
message containing such verbage, is completely irrelevant.  But what
really amazes me is the fact that the folks who so rudely demand to be
taken off said list seem to think they're totally justified in doing
so.  They almost always invariably cop an attitude and don't seem to
realize that all they're saying is "I've got too poor a memory to
remember how to unsubscribe, I'm too poor a planner to have saved the
welcome message, too stupid to figure it out, and too lazy to go look
it up."  And because of what you would think would be an impossible to
achieve combination of ineptness, we're all supposed to jump in and
fix something we have no control of in the first place.  Um, I think I
need a cup of coffee...  Can anybody think of anything else I could
rant and rave about for a while?  ;>)
