When people send messages to Techwr-L asking for help on how to subscribe
or unsubscribe, I always assume that someone else out there will reply. It's
not that I would mind replying; it's just that it seems like a waste to fill
someone's mailbox with multiple "here's how" replies. Coversely, I sometimes
wonder if anyone replies at all. Do you take care of replying to such
requests, or do you leave doing so up to us?
