The problem is not just the incorrect spelling. If the requests were sent
to Majordomo, poor spelling or not, they wouldn't end up in our mailboxes.
Perhaps we could tolerate a once a month (even once a week?) distribution
of "How to get off this list"? Would certainly beat the annoyance of all
the incorrect messages and discussion threads like this one.
