unsubscribe_policy (privacy): Is the list moderator's approval required
for unsubscription requests? (No is recommended)

When members want to leave a list, they will make an unsubscription
request, either via the web or via email. Normally it is best for you
to allow open unsubscriptions so that users can easily remove
themselves from mailing lists (they get really upset if they can't get
off lists!).

For some lists though, you may want to impose moderator approval before
an unsubscription request is processed. Examples of such lists include
a corporate mailing list that all employees are required to be members
