Evidently, someone forged a subscription request between the FreeBSD  
mailing lists and <support@aebc.com>.  postmaster@freebsd.org should  
be able to unsubscribe you.

aebc.com autoresponder is software which generates automated replies,  
and it "SHOULD NOT" (see http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc3834.txt  
section 3.1.8) generate replies when a "Precedence: list",  
"Precedence: bulk", or "Precedence: junk" header appears, and  
subsequent RFC's have recommended that autoresponders also pay  
attention to the "List-Id" and related headers.
