[Mailman-Users] keep users from turning off delivery

How is this any different than an ordinary aliases list?

But seriously, if you want to use Mailman, you can tell it not to mail a
welcome message (this is what has the password in it). Then you can
disable the listinfo portion of the web so that they can't get the
password from the Web-portion, and you can simply route the
<listname>-request alias for the list to go to the admins.

Don't forget to setup the config of the list to *not* look for
administrative requests going to the list.

Good Luck
