"Please take me off your mailing list. I did not subscribe to it and I do
not know how to get off." Put it this way: there are a *lot* of cluless
out there who will do exactly as the confirmation message says, without
knowing what it does.
"open" is not necessarilly bad. If you know that your subscribers are
clueful, and are in a situation where they are posting from several
accounts, open may make your life easier.
JG> (2) Is +confirm available for unsubcribe?
