I'm just guessing here, but I suspect someone was using the address of 
mailman at whitworks.com for subscription to this list (just as I use 
mailman at vo.cnchost.com for my subscription) and then they installed Mailman 
at whitworks.com.  In doing the installation they created the umbrella list 
"mailman", without thinking about their subscription to this list using 
that same username/domain.  Oops!   So now their mailman-users list 
subscription email goes to their umbrella list instead of to the individual 
who subscribed.

I've set them to nomail for now.
