Now if SmartList would only help people unsubscribe in the same way!
Sometimes on busy lists people send Unsubscribe messages several times to
the List
address, and invariably someone on the list posts, "You unsubscribe in the
same way you subscribed." If the person subscribed using the List address
instead of the Request address and later tries to unsubscribe at the same
address, it will not work.

I THINK it tries to but isn't always successful. I also think the reason it
is less successful with UNsub than subs is because often misdirected unsubs
are replies and SmartList won't process a reply and is also more apt to
assume it is an actual attempt to post to the list.
