Long line messages in the archives are due to the person who posted the 
message not having line wrap set on their mail software.

Yes... But it is incredibly *inadvisable*.


1. someone has the address of your trusted subscriber
    in their address book

2. That someone contracts a virus.

3. The virus posts copies of itself pretending to be
    "from" your trusted member.... and *to* the mailing
    list address.

Result... the virus gets posted to the list, as Mailman (rightly) sees 
it as being from a list member.... even if it was not.
