They are considered lazy if they won't click on the pull downs or even
look on their own. If they are that illiterate then I don't know how
they managed to subscribe in the first place.

The better question that should have been asked is:

"I am having problems understanding how to unsubscribe from this list,
can anyone assist me."

Then they would have received all the help they need. Someone could have
even done it for them and all they would have to do is reply to the
confirmation email.
