     I wouldn't suggest removing the notice entirely as this can lead to
accountability issues, especially if the pages are publically accessible.
Also, modifying the Mailman code may not be a good idea as your changes
would be overwritten when installing newer releases.

     One possible option would be to just set
"owner-whateverlist at wherever.com" as the list owner address.  Then that
address would show up as that at the bottom of the pages.  The only
downfall I can see is that you'd have to maintain the list of these
"aliased" owners by hand instead of letting them change it when/if they
ever change.  Would that work?
