There.  If someone cannot figure out what that means, they probably
cannot figure out what unsubscribe means either.  And the footer is
already very long.

In addition, you get a mail when you subscribe, and every month
thereafter, telling you how to unsubscribe.

Finally, if you look at the full headers of the mail, it has a direct
link to the unsubscribe address:

List-Unsubscribe: <http://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde>,
<mailto:kde-request at mail.kde.org?subject=unsubscribe>

but of course, nobody looks there :-(.

BTW, that has to be the most atrocious HTML email I have ever received. 
What the hell *was* that?
