Well, after reading through the fascinating material that followed, I think

it sounds as if he is perfectly capable of unsubbing himself. Or did the CIA

subscribe him? Maybe he thinks the _American_ Dialect Soc. is part of a

govt. conspiracy against him.

For what it's worth, the address from which he sent his various messages

is not subscribed to the ADS list; I don't know how he expects anyone to

unsubscribe him.
