Then you are a pretty dumb program.  I bet it is not.  You should know
that any 'user' called xxx-list is another mailing list and that any
attempt to subscript or unsubscript such is a casual or malicious joke
(possibly from viruses, as probably with this case).  What would you
do if I forged an email trying to subscribe/unsubscribe zsh-users
to/from itself?  Would you send a messege asking it to reply?

Tempted programmer

PS. Anyone know what mailman would do?
