... once you realise that you've been unsubscribed, of course.
I was unsubscribed, once--I thought for a few months that the list was just
really quiet;).

You know that you've been subscribed to a list when you get a
confirmation-request from the list-manager (or hordes of messages)
(shouldn't a confirmation process prevent people from being subscribed by
others?); how do you know when someone's unsubscribed you?
Hm.... Maybe there should be *unsubscription-request-verifcation* messages
