In appropriate yes, but at least responders will not be getting as many
out of office replies. I am replying for future reference.

Go to https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-help and enter your email
address on the "unsubscribe or edit options" button (the last textbox).
You can also get the password (which you will need to unsubscribe)
emailed to you via this option. I think you will be sent an email to
confirm unsubscribe which you need to reply to.

There may be other ways, but I know this one works for sure.

And when you get back, you can subscribe in the same way. BTW, I found
the webpage for subscribing, unsubscribing etc to be much more pleasant
than some other mailing lists.

Regards, Adai
