That's a bit bloodthirsty! I like that! :-) Seriously, if people want
to read their list mail at Yahoo, that's not a technical problem. I
would class banning subscriptions as "harrassment".

To be precise, almost certainly all of the services on Mark's list do
publish advisory records; they just don't include the p=reject option.
For privacy advocates, this means that they *may* get failure-to-
authenticate reports, which *may* contain full mail text (remember,
this is for spam-fighting).

I suspect they will, too. I already have four students who are
switching away from yahoo because of this (they're not even on my
mailing lists yet, I'm adding them now!)
