Are you sure you unsubscribed? (I am not sure if you have to approve
your unsubscription on lfs-lists, but you might figure that out if you
read mails you get from listar closely).

If you _really_ unsubscribed:
Heard of mail-spools lately? If not you might have to learn something. 
What I want to say is that there might be 10-20 (or more) mails in the
mailqueue waiting to be sent to you. That is and can not be switched off
by unsubscribing, since the mails are on the way to you already.

Yeah, threatening people will get peoples attention.

If you really want to complain, send your message to
<list>-owner at linuxfromscratch.org (replace <list> with the listname)
that should work for all _real_ mailinglist you are subscribed to and is
common usage or gerard at linuxfromscratch.org as listed as contact in
every LFS-version that is online.

BTW - talk to people in a way you want to be talked to. And don't call
yourself SirKnight if you don't know how to behave (read the netiquette
at least).

Unsubscribe: send email to alfs-discuss-request at linuxfromscratch.org
and put unsubscribe in the subject header of the message
