Well, we only need one counter example.

I always read the subscribe/unsubscribe info when I want to use it, and 
often at other times.
I do like the one liner,: to unsubscribe: unsubscribe | mail 
unsubscribe-address at unsubscribe.host

The cont in bandwidth is less than the cost of many of the useless headers 
(and sigs) people use.
