And yes, I've seen a couple of mailing lists where such warning signs
_do_ correctly indicate that such passive-aggressive, control-freak
behaviour is endemic among the listadmin staff.

By the way, speaking of typing gaffes, I just did some very minor and
insufferably pedantic copyediting fixes to the new text on the listinfo

o  "subscribed":  You accidentally omitted the "r".
o  "Web":  Being a proper noun in this context, it needs an initial capital.
o  "Linux":  Since it's not an acronym, "LINUX" really wasn't right.

I also bestowed a few initial capitals, closing periods, and commas
where needed.  (Yeah, I know most people lack the pedant gene, and am
not complaining.  I just want our pages to look the best they can.)
