Everybody who doesn't remove unnecessary junk from his messages before
he posts them is 'suffering'. Messages send to you from the list
include your customized unsubscribe link. If you include full messages
when responding to them you are sending out your own custom
unsubscribe link to all subscribers of this list, including all
harvesters, public archives and broken preload-cachers. Since you are
sending out your custom unsubscribe link quite literally by the
thousands, are you really surprised the link is followed occasionally?

If you don't want people to follow this link, why are you including
it? To stop the 'suffering', stop including junk that doesn't belong
in outgoing email.
