Folks,
A number of the responses to the recent batch of "unsubscribe"
requests have been abrupt and rude, implying that those who can't
unsubscribe themselves are perhaps stupid, and at best not "real
engineers".

Please, there's no need for that.  Choose either to respond helpfully
and politely, or not to respond at all.  Remember that we're leading
by example here.  Let's please make the example a positive one,
presenting ourselves as a welcoming community, not as one that's
intolerant of anyone who doesn't know how we operate.  Keep in mind
that especially for the Hackathon (but for the IETF in general, as
well) we are encouraging students, those active in open source
communities, and others who may not be used to participating in these
sorts of activities through email lists, but are instead accustomed to
other tools that work in other ways.

Thanks,
Barry
