Summary: Mass Subscriptions names

Initial Comment:
Today we look at members/add, Mass Subscriptions.

Please change "Enter one address per line below..."
to "Enter Bob Clodsworth <blob at example.com> or just blob at example.com,
one per line:"

Else no one can guess how to get names in.

P.S., with site language = English, don't dream of entering and UTF-8
or &# 31309 ; stuff. You'll get an error. ASCII is assumed, dangnabit!

Yes it's on
http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py?req=show&file=faq03.044.htp
but that's no excuse not to mention it on the page itself.

Holy moly, on the Mass Subscriptions page, if you leave the notify
administrator box checked, it _really does_ send one notification for
EACH subscriber! Subscribe 50 people, and the administrator gets 50
EMAILs about it, not just one email with the results about all 50
names.

Who knows what pleasure is in store on the mass delete page.

You have my permission to split this off into a separate bug.

By the way, on the mass subscription page, if one puts addresses both
in the entry box, and in the contents of the file to be read in, one
ends up with at least one garbled address... do warn or catch or say
on the page that it's OK to use both, then process correctly.

I did not test the mass deletions page.

And even with site language zh_TW, on the mass subscription results page
one sees UTF-8 becomes:

    * &#31309;&#20025;&#23612; <jidanni at jidanni.org> 

though apparently internally it is still UTF-8 at evidenced on other
pages.


P.S., the zh_TW 'send me my passwd' email sends raw % mess:
  我們歡迎任何問題或建議 ! 請 email 給 %(adminaddr)s.
