	The only automated message I can think of that might be sent to 
people who have disabled themselves would be the monthly password 
reminder, but that should also be disabled.  If not, they should be 
able to disable the sending of the monthly password reminder as well.

	If they did get a monthly password reminder sent to them, then 
depending on how other settings are configured, it might 
theoretically be possible for them to be auto-unsubscribed by the 
bounce handling system, if the monthly password reminder resulted in 
error messages coming back to the system.

	But I think that's really reaching.  I'll have to check the code, 
but I don't think that would happen.
