Of course it is.  But it is also keeping (or rather slowing) you from
getting off that damn list.  Imagine that you may have been maliciously
subscribed.  If getting off is hard, the damage can be extensive.
However, for a public, archived list, resubscription after malicious
unsubscribe is much easier and can at best cause a brief loss of mail
from which you can recover by reading archives.

This is, naturally, a tradeoff question.
