And once you've done that, add in german, french, russian, spanish,
portugese, japanese, chinese and the other languages people write these
things in... I'm blessed with a hugely international audience on some of
my lists. (My mother used to be an ob/gyn nurse in a county hospital.
She could, as she used to joke, say "push" in 17 languages. I've come to
understand that one very well....)

motivation to figure it out and fix it. Generally, the first time, they
get unsubscribed. the second, they get banned.
