Christ, you ARE a bundle of laughs, aren't you? :(
For the record, what happened with me is that I posted to one of the
lists (I think it was the wishlist, but I'm not certain) and Avas sent
me an e-mail acknowledging my e-mail, and then a second e-mail saying
that they didn't understand the question I was asking them. They then
sent a perfectly polite third message asking (after I'd tried to
explain what was happening) that I remove them from the list, and they
got a bit upset when I told them that *I* couldn't do that.
As far as I know, they've not posted to the list themselves, they just
respond privately to messages that they receive from the list. They
claimed to have no idea how their address could have been subscribed
in the first place.
