Replying to an ML Listserv message won't remove you from a spammer's list 
because he never sees it. Messages from ML Listserv go ONLY to the 
general ML Listserv address.  It won't work.

If you want to be removed from an individual's list, you need to get that 
person's address from the header and write directly to him.

But that is self-defeating - replyingto ANY spam in ANY way just gets you 
validated as a real email address. You get removed from THAT spam, but 
you get added to dozen's more.
