Back in the day, a friend of mine setup an unsubscribe mailing list,
with open membership. The idea was if you saw someone post an
unsubscribe message, you'd subscribe him to this list. He'd
eventually get email from it (which had unsub directions at the end
of every message) and then flail around trying to unsubscribe.

It made for very entertaining reading until his ISP got tired of the
complaints and made him shut it down.
