Since you started this problem I am very surprised you let it go on so

The unsubscribe email you mention above was sent WRONGLY to the list. It
should not go there and it got sent to all users on the list because the
mailer doesn't distinguish it from any other emails sent to the list.

The fact that your nephew (he wants to program something??) can't figure
something as simple as getting off this list is no reason to blame the list
mailer because it was sent an INCORRECT unsub request.
