Public bug reported:

http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~mailman-coders/mailman/2.1/annotate/head:/doc/mailman-admin/node11.html line 86 includes a link, "Reply-To Munging Considered Useful", pointing to metasystema.org/essays/reply-to-useful.mhtml
archive.org shows this document disappeared sometime between late 2013 and mid-2014, and if it's currently visited, your browser gets redirected through a large number of what I can only assume to be spam domains.

I don't know if there's any policy for what to do with dead links in
documentation, but a faithful reproduction of the document seems to live
on http://marc.merlins.org/netrants/reply-to-useful.html (unchanged for
the last 11 years based on a swift visual inspection via archive.org),
so updating the link to point there seems to make sense.
