Along with those items, I still haven't gotten a good, easy answer to my 
question about the use of the ampersand in the footer. It gets munged 
into an html sequence in plain text. There should be some way to 
"escape" it without having to edit files that only the system 
administrator can reach.

Why should a) they have too choose or deny when they are clicking on a link to confirm? It should just confirm them without another button text and w/o text overwhelm. and b) it takes them back to a list of all my lists, which I hate, or at least would like to have the option of avoiding, if I am not intending to mix all my subscribers. I don't want them to have the option of joining other groups unless I intend to give it to them.
>3) I don't understand if you can attach PDFs where it says, i.e. to new subscribers, etc. When I attach one, it just inserts garble into the text box once the PDF file is uploaded. I can't tell if this is an error, or what, and if I can include additional text.
