This sounds wonderful, #2 sounds like a nice
compromise! Having the user confirm an unsubscribe
request is a very reasonable thing to do. If they
have to confirm to subscribe, it is a 'reasonable'
that they would expect to confirm an unsubscribe.
I'm not sure if #3 is necessary, but I'm certain
that #2 would be sufficient to cover my needs.
Perhaps one more?
4. A way to unsubscribe from all of the lists for
a given domain.
Aka, the majordomo: "unsubscribe * me at domain.com"
Thank you very much for your thoughtful
proposition. It's great. Mailman rocks!
