digitalmars.D - Disable subscription disabling after multiple bounced emails

As you may or may not have noticed, everyone's subscription to
digitalmars.D was just disabled due to too many bounces. Blame Yahoo.
Blame them 100% for you having to re-subscribe. Blame them for not
having done anything about the problem since they implemented their
broken rules last weekend. And finally read
http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/ietf/current/msg87153.html to
understand why you were unsubscribed from the list. Then bug the right
person to do the same as John and disable the mechanism that disables
subscriptions after multiple bounced emails.

What I'm really worried about is that I had my e-mail sent back to me in plain-text.

Sorry, I meant my NG password.

That's the mailman mailing list software's normal operation. Once a month, it emails your the plain text password as a reminder of your subscription. It is silly, but it is also documented on the signup page: http://lists.puremagic.com/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/digitalmars-d You may enter a privacy password below. This provides only mild security, but should prevent others from messing with your subscription. Do not use a valuable password as it will occasionally be emailed back to you in cleartext.

Just because it's documented, doesn't make it right...
