Ah ......I may out of luck. Also, As Sharon points out, this may disable
the who command for every list manager at a site, correct? Some list
managers w/ Majordomo may desire to leave "who" activated.

I wish I new. No response to my five requests over several months. They
just indicate that they're busy. I've explained that there are security,
privacy, and proprietary reasons of substance, but they just don't get it
On another note, I've heard that even disabling "who" will not prevent
certain other methods of even non list members from obtaining alist of
users. Something about sendmail manipulation......
