Thatʼs a valid advice, of course; however, what is indeed a _standard_, and a 
strictly supervised (by spam-filters) one, and therefore respected by hundreds 
and hundreds mailing lists (even read-only) with no regards which software they 
run on, is the header ‘List-Unsubscribe’ added to every mail passed through a 
list, which provides you with link(s) to unsubscribe.  In our case by HTTP and 
by mail, the latter is quicker.

| List-Unsubscribe: <https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/options/jami>, 

Quite a few (mostly nonfree) mail useragents understand this header, and 
incorporate it into UI in form of a button, menu item, keychord.  If yours does 
not, Iʼd suggest you to file a feature request.

In meanwhile, you itʼs much easier just to look for it manually, than to recall 
where you had subscribed.
