Indeed, please note that _every_ post you receive on tis mailing list 
includes these informational headers:

  List-Post: <>
  List-Help: <>
  List-Unsubscribe: <>
  List-Subscribe: <>

Notice that the second of those is the listadmin.  For heaven's sake,
don't retype such things:  Use copy and paste.

Those are ezmlm-format informational headers; pretty nearly every other
mailing list manager has something equivalent.  Therefore, there's
really no excuse for writing to the whole darned subscriber base 
when you have an administrative problem.  Write to the listadmin if you
need help; do NOT write to the mailing list (as Douglas did).
