We get that kind of crap to python.org, too.  I think we get a lot 
more of it than most anyone else, because many stupid people seem to 
see that Mailman is a project supported by python.org, and they 
"naturally" assume that this is the site where all mailing lists in 
the Universe are hosted, and that it's our only purpose in life to 
kowtow to their every whim.

Believe me, I'll put a lot of work into making sure that I *don't* 
comply with their demands, and I can be pretty harsh in my responses.

That's not necessary.  Think of all the "enter your e-mail address, 
have auto-generated new password sent to you" systems on the 
Internet.  Well, that's what we're talking about here.  Trust me, 
it's far, far better than the old reminders.
