Clyde: You'll probably get LOTS of emails like this one.

Send an email to Histonet with the single word  unsubscribe
in the Subject line. Nothing is needed in the body of
the message.

Many are those who spell unsubscribe wrongly.
These are known as the unscribers and unsuscribers. Their
messages go to all the current subscribers, who mumble things
to themselves and hit the delete key. Yet others who would
unsubscribe put nothing in the Subject line, and many of
the subscribers, with 'satiable curiosity, read these
messages and then curse themselves for bothering, and curse
all would-be unsubscribers for not marking, learning and
inwardly digesting the Instructions sent by Linda Margraf
to all who successfully subscribe to HistoNet, whether
for the first time or after a period of unsubscription.

If you re-read this message carefully you will find that the
word unsubsribe has been wrongly spelled at least once, not
counting the examples of wrong spellings. It is not an
easy word to type.
