In what way is it non-functional? You must have a site ('mailman') list
or Mailman won't start, so mailman at yugi.us should be the posting address
of that list, and the list should be configured with the site admins as
members and should accept non-member posts.

Click on a list name to get more information about the list, or to subscribe, unsubscribe, and change the preferences on your subscription. To visit the general information page for an unadvertised list, open a URL similar to this one, but with a '/' and the list name appended.

This text is hard coded in Mailman/Cgi/listinfo.py. To change these
things in this case, you need to edit the module directly.

In some cases you can make an English language message catalog at
messages/en/LC_MESSAGES/mailman.po and
messages/en/LC_MESSAGES/mailman.mo containing the strings you want to
change as 'msgid' values and the replacements as 'msgstr' values, but
that won't work in this case because of the 'links'.
