Subject:  Welcome, clueless user!

Welcome to the Clueless Users Network Test System, an intelligence test for
the ignorant and impolite.

You have been automatically added to this mailing list because you sent a
subscription request like "UNSUB ME" out to the entire readership of a
mailing list, instead of sending it to the list server or list maintainer.

There is nobody of worth reading this mailing list.  The only way you can
become unsubscribed is to figure out the standard way of unsubscribing from
an Internet mailing list.  Until that time, you will get these messages
regularly.

If you made an innocent mistake in sending your "UNSUB ME" out to the entire
list, then you will know how to unsubscribe from this list immediately and no
harm will be done.

If, on the other hand, you simply have no clue how to deal with mailing
lists, you'd better start reading up on the subject before you go blundering
around again.  Your attention is cordially drawn to the newsgroups
news.announce.newusers, news.newusers.questions, and news.answers.

Hint: the mailing list address is clueless @
 mantis .
 co .
 uk .
 

Final hint: most mail servers understand the "help" command.

Have fun.

Who the hell are you?? I never sent anything to your address. I think you
received mail from the wrong person. If you want to be a nuisance, think twice
or better yet, in your case, once.

You know assholes like you think that you can play games with someone's 
personal email, but you picked the wrong person, because I am the last 
person who will give in to shit like you, I can simply stop reading mail
at this account rather than do one little thing that you tell me to do. 
So keep sending junk here for /dev/null to read. Btw, I am a system admin-
strator, I know more about mail servers than you ever want to find out, 
but then two can play this game.
