It may be that they've broken all sorts of things. I received an email
earlier, entitled as follows:

" mailing list memberships reminder"

Ugh. I would never, ever, keep a setting on mailman that sent out those
annoying reminder things, where (among other things) it tells you your
"password" (such as it is). Then I noticed that something must have been
resent, since the password showing was not one I would have chosen. Oh,
but wait, there's more.

Upon using the link provided:

I encounter the following error:

Oh, be still my beating heart. I received this for the "members"
mailing list, but I suspect that if they broke one thing, they broke
multiples. BTW, I checked on the regular link for all nanog lists:

Same error. Please fix this. Consider not making updates without tests.

Thanks ever so.
