It is. This is a new feature of 2.1, folks. And I disagree strongly 
with Nigel that it's a bad idea. I've been running my lists with 
personalization on for about 10 days now (they got all the pain fixing 
things...), and it's a nice plus. It'll be nicer once Barry adds some 
of the personalization into the footer. Once this is turned on, you can 
do some neat things like pre-load the URL for the listinfo page so it 
takes a user to their info directly, not a generic page where they have 
to figure out what to do.

It's a feature, not a bug.
