Every year he says it is the final email, so far that has not turned out to be 
the case. 
If I click on the unsubscribe link and it actually does what it claims, it will 
be a serious inconvenience to me.

peter

Well, he *did* say it was his final email!

I'd imagine the unsubscribe link would get you off the "former donors we can 
spam" list without removing you from this august list.

Cheers,
