Have you been on a list with the unsubscribe instructions in the headers and
footers of an email? Even then you get people that do the unsubscribe s....
to the list itself. Never underestimate the stupidity of some people.

"Good. Bad. I'm the one with gun" just delete the stupid ones or send a 
private berating to them and don't bother the other people on the list.

Leave the post from these people in the quick delete category. Maybe they 
will learn through silence.

Someone should try to write a generic procmail filter to take a html faq and
filter out all mail that makes a reference to a question in the faq.
