Hi :)
Sorry, good point!  Here is a copy of the page ... 


                How to Unsubscribe
                We have
sometimes received complaints from people who have signed-up to our
mailing lists (our user support list, for instance, to ask for help
with something) and then no longer want to receive messages. Sometimes
it's because they've found the solution to their particular problem,
and sometimes it's because some of our lists have quite a heavy traffic
of posts.
This page describes how you can unsubscribe yourself. Please read it thoroughly, as it will most 
likely help you get your problem solved. If you still have problems after reading this help, a 
human contact's e-mail address is linked at the bottom of the document.
If you don't want to receive messages from our mailing lists anymore, please follow the steps below 
to unsubscribe.
We recommend you not to simply flag messages
from our mailing lists as spam just because you don't want to see them
in your inbox anymore. Instead, the best solution is to properly
unsubscribe from the list(s) concerned. That way, you will really put a
permanent end to the unwanted mail.
Check what kind of subscription you originally opted for
When you subscribe to our mailing lists, there are two ways of receiving posts from the list. In 
the standard mode, you receive every post to the list individually as soon as it is sent to the 
list. In digest mode,
you receive a single message containing multiple posts, either once per
day (if the list traffic is low) or after a certain number of posts
have been sent to the mailling list (if the list traffic is high).
If you receive messages with individual subjects, of which the subject lines are prefixed with a 
tag such as "[libreoffice-users]" (which is the list's identifier tag), then it means that you are 
subscribed in standard mode.If you receive a message containing a collection of posts, with a 
subject line starting with words such as "Digest of"
(indicating that the message contains a digest of messages from our
user support list, in this particular example), then it means that
you're subscribed in digest mode.Check which e-mail address you subcribed to the list
People sometimes report that they are having problems unsubscribing
from a list. Sometimes, the reason is simply that they are not sending
the unsubscription request from the same e-mail address that they
originally used to sign-up. If you have multiple e-mail addresses and
are no longer sure what address you used when you subscribed, please
look at the headers of a message from the list (look for a button or
link such as "Details" or "Raw Message" or "Original Message" in your
e-mail program or webmail page). Your e-mail address will be listed in
the "Delivered-To" entry or the "Return-Path" entry, such as
illustrated below:
Return-Path: <>
Notice that in the "Return-Path", your address is embedded in another address, and the "@" is 
replaced by "=". 
After completing the above two steps, you will now know both the
subscription type and the subscribed e-mail address, and you can
proceed to actually unsubscribe, which is a two-step process:
First you send the unsubscription request.Then you confirm that the request was genuinely made by 
yourself, and was not an abusive request sent by someone else.This is similar to the subscription 
process, and is referred to as "double opt-in/out" or "confirmed opt-in/out"). The process is very 
similar to the one you had to use to subscribe to the list in first place.
Send the unsubscription request
If you want to unsubscribe from the mailing list (our user support 
list), for example, send an e-mail message to (if you were 
subscribed in standard mode) or to (if you were 
subscribed in digest mode).
The message does not have to contain anything in the subject line or
in the body of the message. If your e-mail program or webmail service
warns you that you are about to send an empty message, you can ignore
the warning and go ahead with sending the message.
However, it does not matter if you do enter text in the message
subject line or body. Our mailing list software will ignore any
contents and no-one will read the message. Only the destination e-mail
address is used to recognize your intention to unsubscribe.
To repeat what we said above, please do make sure you send this
message from the same e-mail address as was used to subscribe to the
mailing list, otherwise the unsubscription action will not work.
The process is the same for all our lists, and you need to perform this step for every list you 
want to unsubscribe from.
Confirm the request
Shortly after sending the unsubscription request (typically just a
few seconds later - check for new mail, and look in your spam folder if
there doesn't seem to be any), you'll receive a message asking for
confirmation of the unsubscription request. The message will resemble
the example below. 
Subject: Confirm unsubscribe from:

Hi, this is the mlmmj program managing the mailinglist

To confirm you want the address

removed from this list, please send a reply to

<long email-address>

Your mailer may automatically reply to this address when you hit
the reply button. [...]

You confirm your intention by replying to the message. It is a mandatory step to reply to the 
confirmation message, otherwise your subscription will not be terminated and you will continue to 
receiving traffic from the list.
After you send the confirmation message, you will receive one more
message that confirms that you have indeed been unsubscribed. That
should be the last message you get.
If the above instructions don't work
Check your spam folder. Sometimes the confirmation request ends up
in the "spam" or "bulk mail" folder, and people don't notice this and
then wonder why they are still receiving mail. 
Wait some time. Some mail servers implement a technology called
"greylisting" which can delay e-mails up to several hours in the worst
case. If you haven't received any message asking for confirmation after
about four hours, and you checked your spam/junk folder, then something
indeed went wrong.
If all your attempts to unsubscribe just don't work, then - as a last resort - please send a 
message to
and include the following information: The lists you want to be
unsubscribed from, the address you're subscribed with, and detailed
information about the problems you encountered. Please include/forward
the replies you received from the mailing list system, if you received
Apols and regards fromTom :)

     It would have been nice to actually tell the person how to
unsubscribe instead of all of the unnecessary commits. This is the SIXTH
email reply that did not contain an answer! Some help these six replies
were. Shame on the six of you. I'm disappointed in all of you. Yes, be
polite; none really were. Yes, Think before acting: note were doing this
either. And yes, I am peeved with what I saw.
     If a person asks a question, answer it politely.
