FAQ 1.17 has a partial list of Mailman-specific hosting sites, but 
I'm sure there are other sites that have similar lists of providers.

Funny thing about that word "unlimited".  It doesn't actually mean 
"unlimited" anymore.  Now it means:

	We don't advertise any limits because we want to get your business

	place on you, we'll kick your sorry butt out the door as quickly
	as we possibly can.

It's kind of like that secret no-fly list that no one can ever tell 
you whether or not you're on the list or how you got on it or how you 
can get off it, but they won't let you fly if your name is there.
