If it's not in the message the user is looking at when they make the 
decision to unsubscribe, it's not very useful, any more than the 
"monthly posting with unsubscribe information in it" is once the user 
deletes it. Which he will, probably before reading it.m

Again, you're making it easier for the server by forcing the user to do 
something illogical (to them). How do you explain to the user that unsub 
details only show up every 10th message, and why should he care? how 
does this improve the user experience?

Yes, yes, I've finally finished my home page. Lucky you.

making it up as you go along. (chuq von rospach, 1992)
