You really expect ordinary users, who sign up for a discussion list to 
understand autoresponders, mandatory white lists, etc???  Most have trouble 
just figuring out the difference between their user ID's and passwords.  To 
reach a large number of users, the program should be simpler and intuitive 
(which I know requires a much better quality of development).  So far my 
brief introduction to Mailman has been anything but...
