One reason that many people cannot get off the list is because they are
attempting to unsubscribe with a different e-mail address than the one they
subscribed with. If you send the command: REVIEW CU-SEEME-L to
LISTPROC@CORNELL.EDU, it will give you a list of current subscribers, and
you can search for yourself. As the listproc says, there is no
"eyeon@seraph.surf.tach.net". But, there is someone called
"eyeon@Tach.Net" who would be allowed to unsubscribe. Lots of us now can
be reached at many different e-mail addresses, but the listproc has no way
of figuring that out. If you can't remember what address you subscribed
from, do the REVIEW command.
