As apparently many e-mails have already said, whoever was in charge of
moving this mailing list to Google made a HUGE and stupid mistake by
automatically adding people to this list.
I too have spent time this morning cleaning out my mailbox and trying
to fix this. Apparently even joining and unsubscribing doesn't seem to
work, as I am still getting emails. This is unheard of. Who migrates a
list and automatically adds people without giving them options or a
It seems to me the best solution to all the people you just totally
screwed over is to kill the list entirely.
You can then start from scratch with invites or something. But all of
us who want no part of this should not have to deal with this mess
because proper procedure was not followed in moving this list. I can
guarantee you that the emails from "us" are only going to get angrier
and become more frequent until you address this.
Again I say, destroy this list and create a new one. Invite whoever you
want (but not me.)
