Exit status and failed decryption of session key

I am tired of receiving dozens of messages of this list.
I tried many times to unsubscribe. The mailing system does not work properly

me that I am not subscribed. It appears now to me as harassment.
If everybody from the list reads this message he will probably understand his
mistake and maybe do his duty.
