Sending mail to the list instead of to listserv is an easy
mistake for anyone to make, even an experienced user (ahem).

A better solution is for listserv to monitor list mail for
postings that look misdirected (the lone word "unsubscribe," for
example). It then politely asks whether the sender meant to do
that. I have run into this behavior on other lists -- maybe
they're using a different version of listserv.

The moral of this story: don't errors -- design the software to
prevent them!
