I think that enough users have complained
enough about this problem. Would the developers
please consider the reality that passwords
are a hudge pain in the rear end.
People 'maliciously' unsubscribing others is
just NOT A PROBLEM. Requiring a password is
counterproductive. It makes unsubscribing
too hard for the casual user.
PLEASE consider removing this requirement.
