Thanks, GNU Mailman!

I always know it's a new month when I check my mail and find subscription notifications from a billion GNU Mailman installations, complete with plain-text passwords.

My dad was just telling me that at work people intentionally subscribe majordomo lists to other majordomo lists, and worse, majordomo + their SMTP servers are dumb enough to loop messages infinitely. Heh.

I wrote a list server in high school ... it ruled. 5 points to the first person that can reply and remember its name. 5 extra points for its second name, and the reason we had to change it. :-)
