I tend to feel the same way. I've never understood that mentality. I
mean, it literally takes less than a minute to subscribe then less than
another to unsubscribe. You really want information but it's not worth
two-minutes of your time to get it? Must not be really important to you

Still, their willingness to moderate non-subscribers shows how much our
moderators rock. Most mailing list I belong to would never do this. This
sets our mods apart! Great job guys.
