	I block spamcop auto-whinges because they used to garbalise
	the headers. Besides, it still cant tell the difference between
	GOL, an ISP in Asia, and AOL, the 53rd state.

	Any ip address sent to spamcop gets a probe from ORBS. That
	good enough for you? 

Back on topic.

	I really would like mailman to archive all subscribe requests
	in their entirety as a standard feature. It would make life
	easier, which is what mailman is all about.

	Perhaps a button on the management page "copy admin requests
	to list manager" would be sufficient, then they can keep/delete
	them at leisure.


	who was just subscribed to some list by someone at some IP address.
	no date was even mentioned -.-!

We have forgotten at least two important things ...
