Thanks you. Your first sentence is really cool, BTW.

What we might need is a really robust, easy to configure, solid, fast,
simple to administer new (maybe commercial) e-mailing list manager.
(nothing against B.C.'s perl hack majordomo, and the other listserver
written in C.)

My guess is,  whomever comes up the the next-generation list manager
utility will save us all a bunch of hassles and make every ISP's job 
just a 'little bit' easier.

BTW, that is one of the more amusing errors I see in a long time:

unsubscribe nanog capprove gatores subscribe nanog [email protected] ....

Makes me want to sponsor the "Majordomo Error of the Year Contest";
who knows what humorous babble we might provoke the major' to say.

Sorry for the divergence from the 'norm'.
