Brock asked me about this in private and I asked him to bounce it to the
list instead, but I fear it has been trapped by a filter. Since I will not
repost private email, I'll just discuss the thing here.
Some MLMs these days have one address per command, at least for the very
common commands like zubscribe. Sending a message to that address results
in the command being executed with the From: address as the victim. Should
we do this with Majordomo?
I have a vaguely bad feeling about it. It's not difficult to do at all; I
can write a new mj_command interface to do it in just a few minutes. But
then we have to decide which commands get their own separate aliases. What
about sites that don't want to add a pile of additional aliases, or sites
running 1.94? They then become 'incompatible'. And you end up issuing
confirmation tokens for every spam that hits these addresses. (Unless
you actually still run auto or open lists, in which case you have bogus
addresses added to your lists.)
But I've really not made a decision.
