While I seem to have rather unusual list members (previousl list
traffic has discussed this oddity), I haven't had a single member
either complain of or state they left because of the list passwords.
I have had several "I forgot my password and would you mind..."
messages, but every one has responded well to just being pinted back
at the list web pages with a couple extra instructions.

Now brace yourself, Chuq and Co are likely to weigh in in force at
this point.
