This request has come up a couple of times recently. In fairness, the footer
isn't as user friendly as it could be for those not used to the way mailing
lists work. I wonder if it is possible to make the "unsubscribe" option
clearer in the text in the footer. So for really simple wording, how about
something like: 

> _______________________________________________

> Herts at mailman.lug.org.uk
> To manage your subscription to Herts LUG mailing list (including to

I'm sure someone who is better with words than me could come up with
something neater and more obvious. Of course being part of a central system,
might mean editing options of the footer are minimal....
