Sure there is.
Every message from the list contains the info:

List-Help: <mailto:latex2html-request@tug.org?subject=help>
List-Post: <mailto:latex2html@tug.org>
List-Subscribe: <http://tug.org/mailman/listinfo/latex2html>,
List-Id: LaTeX-to-HTML conversion via latex2html <latex2html.tug.org>
List-Unsubscribe: <http://tug.org/mailman/listinfo/latex2html>,
List-Archive: <http://tug.org/pipermail/latex2html/>

Just email any message to the address given as  List-Unsubscribe .
Of course, you have to make sure that you are sending with 
email address corresponding to that which is known to the list.
So if it knows an old address that is .forwarding from a different
machine, or using a mail alias, then this method may not work.

Then you can ask me to do the unsubscribe; but **please** tell me
the address to which the list is sending, else I may not be able to
find you easily.

Yes; this is one way to do it.
Indeed, it lets you stop receiving email, yet still stay on the list.

This is what I do when there are problems with delivery.
The name and user-preferences can remain; and the user can later log-in
and restore the service themselves, after the difficulty has been cleared.

Again, this only works when you know the address that the list is using
to send your mail. If this is not your normal address, then you can get
it from any message that you have received.

Hope this helps,
