Unfortunately, this doesn't work so well for sites (such as SGI),
where the linux-kernel mailing list is gatewayed onto a newsgroup;
as the readers of the list won't be (and don't want to be) subscribed
I think if this guy can be, um, prevented from doing this
again, leaving the list open is probably the best solution at
Another possible suggestion would be to create a system which
serves as an open NNTP/NNRP host containing the linux-kernel
(and other linux) mailing list(s) as newsgroups that can be
accessed via any NNRP enabled newsreader, ultimately to replace
the infeed side of the mailing list (one could still arrange
for digests to be mailed out, if one desired).
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
the body of a message to firstname.lastname@example.org
