I get unsubscribed every month or two. It seems completely random, as it
never coincides with any mailer problems and I never get any notice that
I've been unsubscribed. Sending email to the list maintainer about it seems
to go into a black hole. I think I'm going to resort to just having a cron
job that subscribes me once a week, until they get their mail problems sorted

And don't worry, it stops being annoying after the 50th time, and just sort
of becomes a nuisance.
