Correct, hence my suggestion to simply tweak the list server software to
add a custom Reply-To header (both list*and*  unsubbed OP) for posts
from unsubbed posters.

I have another idea...

Instead of individual list subscriptions, why not create a more
centralized 'user account' based support system, that gives posting
privileges to*all*  email lists once you have registered. This system
would have a simple web interface where people can control what lists
they get mail from (checkboxes for each list)?

honestly, this sounds like a lot of work, and I doubt it is worth the
efforts. We have mailing lists, soon will have a forum, and can already
use Nabble for mailing lists. To me, this sounds like a good option for
anyone seeking support?

Well, being that ianap, I don't really know how much work it would be -
while I'm not suggesting it would be 'trivial' at all, it just seems to
me like not so much for someone well versed in the necessary tools -
'seems' being the operative word there... ;)

Like I said, it was just an idea, the thought being it is better to
spend a bit more 'up-front', building an easy to use and comprehensive
support 'System', to reduce the overhead of managing the support process
(including lists) for the long run...

Anyway, at a minimum, I would dearly love to see simple list specific
pages for subscribing/unsubscribing. Mailman generates these out of the
box, so its not like this should be a lot of work - unless mlmmj doesn't
provide such pages? If not, then I think it would be worth it to make
the move to mailman just for that.
