Hi I have tried to unsubscribe from this list now three times, I desperately need to unsubscribe from this list from this address because the list is choking this mailbox.
Below are the various suggested ways of unsubscribing

> To subscribe or unsubscribe via the World Wide Web, visit
> https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-help
> or, via email, send a message with subject or body 'help' to
> r-help-request@stat.math.ethz.ch

I did the second the first time, I received an email suggesting that I send an email to that address with unsubscribe in the subject nothing in the body, which I did, I received a confirmation request from that address and I confirmed, after confirmation I received a response that I had been unsubscribed. I continued to receive email from this list. So I went ahead and tried to unsubscribe via the https address, unfortunately it said that it did not recognize my password, as I write down all my passwords I doubt I've forgotten it and I am assuming that somewhere in the system I have been unsubscribed but unfortunately not through the whole system. Anyway I attempted again via the r-help-request, got the same response and of course the end result is I am still receiving the emails that are choking my system. Yesterday in order to deal with this problem I tried to contact r-help-owner@stat.math.ethz.ch
and I have not received a response from him. This might very well be because this mailbox is getting so damned choken by mail from this list that a number of emails from other lists etc. are being refused. I am cc'ing him on this email. I would like someone to get me unsubscribed from this list as I don't think it very fair that I should have to abandon a mailbox that I have set to receiving mails from several interesting lists and that I have been using for more than a year now.
