I think I see the problem here. Your unsubscribe request resulted in
the following log entry: - - [09/Sep/1999:06:31:40 -0700] "GET /cgi-bin/cgiemail/mail.txt?name=Derric+Tubbs& HTTP/1.0" 200 2729

This means you unsubscribed (and presumably also subscribed) using the
e-mail address "". However, the return address
in your e-mail is "", which doesn't match
what the BeroList software had as your address in the htdig members
database. The string matching in BeroList is case insensitive, so the
presence or absence of capitals isn't a problem, but it doesn't do "fuzzy"
matching, so the missing "l." and the extra "west." do pose a problem.

I guess the best advice is to unsubscribe the way you subscribe. Either
do both by e-mail or do both by the web, so you know you're using the
same address each time.

According to Tubbs, Derric L:
