Because people don't know how to follow directions:

Specifically, this part, right here:

"To unsubscribe from a list, send a mail which body is “unsubscribe” to the
controller address."


Not to ruby-talk(a)
To ruby-talk-ctl(a)

Then again, most people only seem to send the "unsubscribe" once -- after
that, presumably, they figured out how to properly unsubscribe, or they just
marked it all as spam.
