What's your point? Nobody forces you to choose the option I want
to have (but I still prefer to be a recipient of those mailing
lists that tell me my subscription e-mail. Again, it is my choice
I am talking about, no need to argue with me).

What is it with all of you? You are all repeating moot statements.
I asked to have a feature, and there is no point in your telling
me/us that you do not need this feature. If you don't need it, then
what's the problem. It should be optional, anyways, because there
is no and was never a question that this "feature" would slow the msg
delivery down.

Or did you all get the impression that I was wanting that mandatory?
I'm sorry if I expressed myself so poorly, but wouldn't common sense
prevent such an understanding?

Oh my. I have sooo many projects I want to realize, and they're
all so cool and promising ... :-)

No, thanks. That's why I asked this list: To find a list server
that suits me well enough. Macjordomo is quite good, so I thank
the list again for helping me out here.

And I'll also check out AutoShare, which someone only mentioned
while making a different point :-)

Of course I could, since I run a rather small list here, anyways.
I was just going by the principle (which I value very much) that
I do not want to do upon others that I do not like to be done on
me (loosely translated from German).
