Although it is amazing the number of people who can get themselves
on a double opt-in Mailman list with unsubscribe links everywhere
they turn and still send "GET ME OFF THIS STUPID LIST OR
ELSE!" messages to the whole list.  Or fail to find the list on their
yahoogroups and so decide that the best way to get off the list is to
report it as spam.

Heather Madrone, who has Mailman installed on OpenBSD and is
trying to figure out where the 404s are coming from.  The httpd.conf
file looks right, and check_perms runs clean.  But such is progress.
