I've seen this as well on a number of occasions.  As I noted in my
previous email, a lot of people, I might say _especially_ AOL users, are
not highly computer literate, and many may indeed be computer-phobic.
They don't have the patience or confidence to follow the directions
provided to properly unsubscribe from a list, so they just find all the
list posts that they can and report them as spam, hoping that AOL will
help them unsubscribe.
