Something like that.  It's not as easy as BOTi makes out (later in the
thread), but this is basically a simple spam problem, and nonmalicious
(ie, people generally really want to get unsubscribed and won't
repeatedly post with ingenious ways to get around the 'bot).

It's solved, too.  By mailman, at least, and presumably many other
popular listservs.  Just check "Administrivia Filter", or port the
Python code to whatever we're using.
