Thanks you. Your first sentence is really cool, BTW.
What we might need is a really robust, easy to configure, solid, fast,
simple to administer new (maybe commercial) e-mailing list manager.
(nothing against B.C.'s perl hack majordomo, and the other listserver
written in C.)
My guess is, whomever comes up the the next-generation list manager
utility will save us all a bunch of hassles and make every ISP's job
just a 'little bit' easier.
BTW, that is one of the more amusing errors I see in a long time:
unsubscribe nanog capprove gatores subscribe nanog firstname.lastname@example.org ....
Makes me want to sponsor the "Majordomo Error of the Year Contest";
who knows what humorous babble we might provoke the major' to say.
Sorry for the divergence from the 'norm'.
