Perhaps the wording of the message should be more along the lines of 'if
you didn't send this, just ignore it or send this to the list
administrator who may stop it happening'. Emphasise that without their
approval, nothing is going to be changed with their (un)zubscription.
Saves the whole problem of how on earth do you code a 'reject all' token
across all majordomo lists at that site, which may itself be spoofed.
