I said "with *some* browsers.

Chimera on Mac OS X is one (you can edit the cookies.txt file by hand,
but not from the menu AFAIK). In any event, the issue is also that many
people won't know that they need to remove the cookie in the first

There are people other than geeks who run, admin, or moderate lists
using Mailman, y'know...
