Ouch, my mail spool hurts just thinking about it. It works great as
long as there aren't many Majordomo's registered. Now imagine if 100
are registered. The lists command will lead to 100 messages in your
mailbox. Now imagine that someone posts the instructions on a mailing
list or newsgroup and 20 users at one site give the lists command. Oh
boy, 2000 messages at once.
