Actually, I haven't gotten my crossbow yet, but I see you get the point
anyway. ;-)

But, it's more fun to share laughs with other people, so this might
not have the results you think it does.

Actually, I found out that this version of Majordomo will prevent people
who are not subscribe from posting if you tell it to.  The problem here
is that most mailers are not configured correctly and show the wrong
address.  Couple that with the fact that this version of majordomo is
too stupid to figure out what a persons correct address is, and we'd
have a lot of people that *do* subscribe not able to post.  That,
I don't want.
