I just tried to unsubscribe from the list and
I got this back:

Is it just me, or does mailman try to do too many
things with passwords? I have enough passwords
to deal with, I don't need any more. I really
don't need to be told that I need a remember
a password to unsubscribe from a mailing list.

Does this password thing seem like a stupid
idea to anyone else? Please tell me this is
a bug and will get fixed?
