At the moment you can email to listar at
But yes I can see where that can be hard to remember. I can setup an alias 
from something to listar. Perhaps the whole -request thing is too hard for 
some. How about unsubscribe at and in subject "unsubscribe 
listname" and equally subscribe at with a subject of 
"subscribe listname"

Then again, how much should one accommodate people who can't read 
instructions....i'll have to give this some thought

Unsubscribe: send email to lfs-discuss-request at
and put unsubscribe in the subject header of the message
