The best 'tweak' I've seen of Majordomo (1.94.4)
was also the simplest : the addition of the _single word
'end' (circa. line 1687 of the Majordomo perl script).
With lists configured with subscribe policy as open+confirm
the Majordomo would then send confirmation messages as
>If you really want this action to be taken, please send the following
>commands (exactly as shown) back to "Majordomo@somewhere.com":
auth 995122a8 subscribe sfa email@example.com
People _new to Majordomo usage tend to be oblivious
to the fact that sending an erroneous cmd to Majordomo
causes it send several hundred lines of 'help' info.
Many people use non-standard .sigs/.sig separators
(use of /^-/ doesn't cover most of those instances)
and this also causes long error messages. The above
use of 'end' hedges the odds that a help message
will not be generated.
Well, the above is just an /opinion/: A large
section of the Majordomo user community only use
dial-up connectivity and seek a MLM which
responds as _tautly as possible (unlike this msg!).
