* One characteristic of the "bounces list" setup common with Majordomo is

Even without using the strip option and with the different comments on each?
Then this is a serious impediment of taking advantage of the bounces list on
the site I'm taking part in list management, since many subscribers are on
several lists. So, they would also find out one of the removals from a
regular list to bounces. On the other hand, if the bounces script could be
patched to remove this fault, then the automatic resubscriber (merely to
take some additional work of management) would work - but apparently what is
at question here is the whole method majordomo uses to stop duplicate
subscriptions, so the idea is finnished?
Thanks for the information, Brent.
