Make that any poster who sends a message of which the body or
subject matches the regular expression:


That catches the "unsuscribe" as well, and it seems there are
more of those than people who actually spell it correctly.  ;o)

The mailman list manager software obviously appears to have an
inferior detection AI for detecting unsubscribe attempts sent to
the list address.  This has the misfortune of other people
thinking that they can unsubscribe by also posting the same, or
by replying similarly..  I still think putting the email
unsubscribe info in the bottom of each message is the best
though, as there were virtually zero unsubscribe requests making
it through to the lists before (with SmartList).

Perhaps just some tweaking needs to be done..
