Assuming "test70-request" is the list name, you should be sending "who

You sent your "who" command to the list address instead of to Majordomo.
The "Administrivia" filter trapped the "who" in line one of the message,
recognized it as a possible attempt to send a Majordomo command to the
list address, and bounced the message to the list owner.
Administrivia checking can be turned off in the list.config if you want
to. Look for the section that looks like this...
# administrivia [bool] (yes) <resend>
# Look for administrative requests (e.g. subscribe/unsubscribe) and
# forward them to the list maintainer instead of the list.
administrivia = yes
...and change the "yes" to "know". That will stop the administrivia
bounces, but your "who" command still won't work as you were doing it.
Send "who <listname>" to the majordomo address, not to thew list address.
