Disconnecting from the Internet

I created a simple script that scrapes the Astronomy Picture of the Day webpage each day and sends anyone an email with the contents. I originally did this for my father before the advent of RSS. Since then, more and more people have subscribed to the list.

 When users subscribe/unsubscribe from the list, they can leave comments for me, and I had to share the comment from a recent unsubscriber...

 

Loved your pictures but I am now disconnecting from Internet.

 Does one really diconnect from the Internet these days? And if you do, do you really take the time to unsubscribe from all of your distribution lists?!?
