Can the Gods of the mailing list please end this long email thread? All that needs to be done is to add an unsubscribe link to messages sent by the server. If this is technically feasible, please do it. If it is not let us know so we can get on to other issues!

I disagree that this message belongs at the top... That is rare in bulk mail I receive, and seems unnecessarily intrusive. Addition of the word "Unsubscribe" to clarify the function of the link seems in line with current use.
