Thanks Rich.

For transparency, I was the one who did the mass unsubscribe of about
1100 email addresses.

I got a list of emails from our IT department of folks that were added
in a single transaction on Jan 19th. Unfortunately, I couldn't
differentiate between folks that were added that day in that transaction
vs. folks who were already on the list previously and were re-added by
that transaction.

So, unfortunately, as Rich mentions, there were a few people removed who
should not have been. Hopefully all of those folks just resubscribe
quickly, and then we'll be back to normal :)
