I am tired of receiving dozens of messages of this list.

I tried many times to unsubscribe. The mailing system does not work
and the owner of the list (Lord of the Lists <>)
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.
