I work for an Internet Service Provider. We've set up majordomo
mailing lists (v1.9.2) for several of our users (mostly businesses), and
have been requested by two different list owners that we disable the
"who" command for their lists.
It seems that the list owners are worried about their competion requesting
a list of email addresses of people subscribed to their lists.
This is understandable, given that the subscribers are all
(theoretically) people interested in their products/services.
Such a list would be fairly valuable to a company with a
>From what I can see, majordomo allows you to configure a list so that
only someone subscribed to that list can do a "who", but it doesn't
allow you to totally disable the "who" command for a list.
We're considering just writing some code to handle the problem,
but before doing that, I just wanted to see if anyone else
had come up against this problem and/or found a solution for it.
(Or if there is a way to do this, and I just missed it when I
read the documentation/FAQ/etc.)
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
