No, it isn't. Contrary to mailing list best practices, NANOG
unsubscribe information is stubbornly stashed in the email headers
where users of certain mail programs have no prayer of getting to it
and users of most other mail programs don't know how to look for it.

Mr. Shimonski could solve his problem by googling "unsubscribe nanog"
but he probably has no other way of figuring out how to get off of the
list.
